A flurry of moves could follow end of league season

Benfica Blog
With Benfica set to take on FC Porto in the Taca de Portugal final, it marks the end of the 2019/20 season and many are expecting a flurry of moves to be announced next week by the club with the first being the not so secret return of Jorge Jesus as the clubs manager. Jesus' return does not come without a price as Benfica get ready to splash money around for the first time in years acquiring some top talent as they look to recapture the Portuguese crown as well as make a mark in European football. Benfica have been linked to the likes of Edinson Cavani, Cebolinha, Bruno Henrique, Leonardo Cabrera and Gerson to name a few. Benfica President Luis Filipe Vieira has promised Jesus that he will have a say on who stays and who goes within the current club while adding from abroad the players that the manager seeks to strengthen the squad. Expect Benfica to announce between three to five player signings in the next ten days with a couple of those signings sending shock waves across Portugal and Europe. Benfica has also opened dialogue with many Brazilian clubs as Jesus looks to bring over some of Campeonato's better players. The summer transfer season will have the attention of many Benfica fans as they await eagerly for the good news and some relevance once again in Europe.
