Benfica Blog

Benfica continue to work on moving out players that Jorge Jesus has no intention of utilizing this season and with the transfer window set to close tomorrow the club is hard at work. Today saw Benfica send out striker Carlos Vinicius on a two year loan to PSV in which the club will receive €2.5M up front and PSV have an option to make the move permanent for a reported €10M for 50% of Vinicius' rights.

Benfica moved Florentino Luis to Getafe also on loan for the season in which Benfica will receive €500K for the loan and Getafe have the option to buy 50% of Florentino's rights for €10M at seasons end. The moves didn't stop there as forward Jota is reported to have completed his medical and will join Celtic for the season on loan, Celtic will have the option to make the move permanent at seasons end for €7.5M of 75% of Jota's playing rights.

Although Benfica had a busy day they are still looking for homes for Chiquinho, Gabriel, Samaris and Ferro before the deadline window shuts until January but have yet to agree to terms with any clubs to move the players. Chiquinho has been linked in recent days with Italian side Torino, while Gabriel is linked with a move to Brazilian side Sao Paulo.
