Man Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool battle for Benfica teens Joao Filipe and Joao Virginia

Benfica whizkids Joao Filipe and Joao Virginia are targets for England's biggest clubs. The Daily Express says Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal are set to battle it out for Benfica prodigy Joao Filipe, dubbed 'the next Cristiano Ronaldo', and his team-mate Joao Virginia.

Filipe is a winger who, like Ronaldo, is capable of playing in various attacking positions and has a sharp eye for goal.

Virginia is an up-and-coming goalkeeper who has already put in a number of top performances for the youth team, and both players have already been offered long-term contracts by the Europa League runners-up.

However both are keen to play in the Premier League, and could make the move to either Manchester, London or Merseyside.
