Felix (20) joined Atletico Madrid for £113 million ($146m) back in July, after rising through the ranks at Benfica over the past five years.

The 20-year-old contributed 15 goals and seven assists to Benfica’s cause last season, and has picked up from where he left off at the start of the 2019-20 campaign in Spain with Atletico Madrid.

The Portuguese has now joined some elite in winning this individual accolade, as he aims to mimic them and rise through the ranks.
