Felix, 19, is rated as one of the most promising players in Europe and has had a hand in 25 goals for Benfica this season.
The Portugal midfielder’s performances have caught the attention of a number of clubs and reports say Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants United to sign him this summer.
Silva, who came through the Benfica academy, believes Felix is one of a number of players at the Portuguese club capable of thriving at Manchester City.
He told outlet Sol: ‘I really enjoyed playing against Benfica in the Champions League
‘It is very good the bet that Benfica has made on youngsters, from Ferro, Joao Felix, Florentino, to Jota, who has played less.
‘I wish I could take the youngsters from Benfica to Manchester. They are all very good.’
Silva has this week also heaped praise on Man City and Man United target Bruno Fernandes, who is flourishing at Sporting Lisbon.

‘Bruno [Fernandes] is a great player,’ the midfielder told O Jogo.
‘He has made a fantastic season with many goals, many assists that are not normal for a player of his position.
‘He has very good numbers and we will see what happens at the end of the season. He is a player who can play in other leagues.’
Silva himself has enjoyed another impressive season for Manchester City, scoring 14 goals and providing eight assists in all competitions.
