These two young Benfica talents are currently being scouted by the best clubs in the world, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal etc.

Joao Filipe

He is an Attacking left winger who can attack from any position on the field, he is said to be the next Cristiano Ronaldo :eek:. Currently playing for Benfica Juniors and Portugal U15 at the tender age of 15, is it 1.67m tall and can use both feet.


Joao Virginia

is a goalkeeper who went on trial at Manchester United with Joao Filipe, he is the same age, 15, and is 1.86m tall. Joao Virginia shows great strength and presence for a 15 year old and is currently playing for Benfica Juniors.


Here is an article about these two talents going on trial at Manchester United:

Manchester United have taken two 15-year-old Benfica starlets on trial.

Highly rated winger Joao Filipe arrived at United's Carrington Training Complex on Tuesday for training as coaches run the rule over the youngster.

And Joao Virginia, a goalkeeper, is also training with United as the Old Trafford club steal a march on their European rivals.


The Reds have been tracking Filipe for six months, with the youngster also being followed by Catalan giants Barcelona.

Benfica are attempting to seal long-term deals for the two players but they are facing major competition across the continent.

Many teenagers are handed trials by United throughout the year and they do not always result in prolonged interest.

However, in the case of these two players, United may firm up their interest sooner rather than later with Filipe and Viriginia among the brightest prospects to emerge from Portugal in recent times.

When asked about the two players, United said that they never comment on trialists at the club.
