Benfica to return to River Plate for Enzo type deal

Benfica Blog
Benfica are set to return to River Plate looking to land striker Lucas Beltran in an Enzo Fernandez type deal according to reports coming out of Argentina. The 21 year old striker has already scored eight goals while providing one helper across nineteen games of action this season.

Beltran is signed until the end of 2025 with a €25M buy out clause but Benfica could use the same formula that is presented to River Plate when they acquired midfielder Enzo Fernandez last summer. This formula saw the Argentinian club earn substantial percentage on the future sale of the player.

River Plate may be eager to go this route once again after earning €35M from the sale of Enzo Fernandez to Chelsea by Benfica during the winter transfer window, which was on top of the €15M that the club received from the Lisbon side up to that date. 

A similar deal could be in the works between the two sides after such a lucrative arrangement was completed less then a year ago.
