Liverpool have been dealt a blow in their race to sign Joao Felix following a recent comment made by Benfica president Luis Felipe Vieira over the player's future.

Felix emerged a huge target for Liverpool and other European big names following his impressive display under former boss Bruno Lage, and so far in the season running.

The teenage midfielder was promoted to Benfica's first team and made his debut last year August.

Vieira revealed his plan to scupper the effort of suitors by increasing the release clause in the 19-year-old's contract, admitting he is not for sale.

"I am happy that all of Europe is talking about Benfica's talents," Vieira told Tuttosport.

"Now it is clear that our project of betting on young players is bearing the desired results. Joao Felix the next Ronaldo? There is only one sure thing: Felix is one of the best talents produced by Portuguese footballer since Ronaldo.

"Juventus' and Real Madrid's interest in him? Ask them. At this moment we are not interested in selling him and soon we will increase the release clause in his contract.

"Joao has an incredible technique, he is fast and also very intelligent. He is a good person, he shows that he has important values that make me very proud."
