Benfica: Portuguese club could lose two of their top youngsters

Filipe is a 15-year-old winger, while Virginia is a goalkeeper and is of the same age. Both players are highly rated.

Earlier in the season, Barcelona made an offer for Filipe, who has been likened to Real Madrid and Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo.

Both Filipe and Virginia have been offered new long-term deals by Benfica, but they have yet to agree to them.

The teenagers are thought to be keen on playing in the Premier League in the future, and this has alerted United, City, Liverpool and Chelsea.

Benfica are now bracing themselves for offers from the English clubs.

"The teenagers are thought to be keen on playing in the Premier League in the future".....that's City and Chelsea out of the running then.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
