João Félix Sequeira (born 10 November 1999) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Atlético Madrid and the Portugal national team as a striker. He can also play as a winger or an midfielder.

Félix initially trained at Porto's youth ranks before moving to rivals Benfica in 2015. He began playing for the club's reserve side a year later and was promoted to the first-team in 2018, making his professional debut at 18 years old. He then starred as a goalscorer and helped Benfica win the league title in his first and only season, being awarded as the league's Best Young Player of the Year. He also became the youngest ever player to score a hat-trick in the UEFA Europa League, aged 19.

Félix's performances sparked the interest of several European clubs, with Atlético Madrid signing him in 2019 as the fifth most expensive association football transfer – the second most ever paid for a teenager – in a transfer fee worth €126 million (£113 million).

After being capped for Portugal's youth teams at under-18, under-19 and under-21 levels, Félix made his senior debut in the semi-finals of the 2019 UEFA Nations League Finals, won by Portugal on home soil.
