Jorge Jesus asks Vieira for Mineiro right back

Benfica Blog
Benfica manager Jorge Jesus is looking to add to the right side of his back four and has reached out to President Luis Filipe Vieira to make a move for Atletico Mineiro's Guga when the transfer window re-opens in January. Jesus has not been impressed by the play of summer signing Gilberto who he has been forced into action after the injury suffered to starting right back Andre Almeida. Jesus has also been working with youngster Diogo Goncalves in the role of right back from his usual wing position but the youngster is still a ways from getting a grasp of the new position. Jesus knows Guga from his time at Flamengo and feels that the 22 year old would strengthen a position that the clubs manager feels is one of his weakest. Guga joined Mineiro in January of 2019 and has appeared in 47 games across all competitions, scoring once. Mineiro is said to want €6M to depart with the services of their starting right back.
