Benfica has a busy deadline day

Benfica Blog
Benfica had a busy deadline day to follow up a busy second last day yesterday that saw more players heading out the exit door then into the Lisbon club. Benfica moved Chiquinho, Tomas Tavares and Joao Fereira on loan to Braga, Basel and Guimaraes respectively, while the club and midfielder Andreas Samaris came to an agreement on rescinding the 32 year olds contract.

Benfica did see the arrival of midfielder Valentino Lazaro on loan from Inter Milan for the season in what turned into a very busy 48 hour window. Chiquinho's loan move to Braga does not include any purchase option, while Basel can purchase 50% of Tavares rights at the conclusion of the season for €5M. Guimaraes also have a buy option on Joao Ferreira for the same €5M but it is unknown what percentage of the player the Minhoto club would acquire.

Benfica's loan move for Lazaro from Inter Milan does include an option to make the move permanent at seasons end and it is reported to be for around €8.5M. Benfica did not move on from midfielder Gabriel who was linked with a move to Brazil to join Sao Paulo and the club was also in discussions with Gil Vicente on loaning keeper Mile Svilar but that move failed to materialize before the window closed.
