Benfica look to snag Uribe from FC Porto

According to reports coming out of Mexico, Benfica are looking to get the edge over FC Porto in acquiring Club America play making midfielder Mateus Uribe. The 28 year old Uribe had a strong performance in the recent Copa America for Colombia and has been gathering interest from a host of European clubs. Benfica most recently had a deal with Club America in January of this year when they sold striker Nico Castillo for €7.5M, part of that debt is still outstanding and Club America could look at a deal with Benfica as a way to settle the remaining debt. Uribe has been a member of Club America since the summer of 2017 and appeared in 40 games across all competitions last season scoring three times.
