Rui Melo, of A Bola, explained to France Football: "João has two partner agents: Pedro Cordeiro and Moreira de Sá, a striker of the 90s for modest clubs.
"(But) the president of Benfica prefers that all players are represented by Mendes. And when Felix signed his last contract, with a €120m release clause, the Mendes company, Gestifute, and the other agents entered into a partnership.
"They each represent 50% of João Félix. They (the agents and Benfica) have accepted that only Mendes could bring the best offers to the player."
