Benfica send Dantas and Ferreira to B squad

Benfica have started shedding their main roster squad as the start of the season closes in. Benfica have sent youngsters Tiago Dantas and Joao Ferreira to their B squad. The two 18 year olds spent the majority of the preseason with the main squad and accompanied the team to America for the International Champions Cup. Ferreira was also linked with a move to Juventus as part of a deal that would see Benfica acquire keeper Mattia Peron but that deal did not materialize due to Perin's failed medical. Benfica B will count on both players to add some spark to the squad and Benfica will be counting on both players as vital members of the UEFA Youth League.

Benfica's player sales of past five seasons
