The last day of the market did not bring last minute reinforcements to Benfica, but it did allow the Eagles to resolve several outstanding issues and fix the house for 2021/2022. Yesterday, the incarnation made several official outings. Florentino was introduced in Getafe, the same with Carlos Vinicius in Eindhoven. For the 26-year-old Brazilian, it’s farewell to incarnations, with a two-year loan to the Dutch and a mandatory purchase.
Eagles explained the features of the transaction to the Brazilian Securities Market Authority (CMVM). €2.5 million loan fee, €10 million to be paid upon achievement of goals and 50 per cent of the amount on a future transfer. SAD assumes a commission of €237,000, which adds another €950,000 when PSV pays €10 million. Celtic, Jota, showed the same with Basel and Thomas Tavares. And he still solves the problem of Andreas Samares.
After all, Benfica invested almost 26 million euros, which is the largest share of the 17 million euros paid by Roman Yarmashuk. Loans from Radonjic and Valentino Lazaro, no-cost acquisitions from João Mário and Rodrigo Pinho. Not to forget Mitte and Gil Dias.
In the exits, SAD earned more than 60 million euros in cash, the largest tranches for Pedrienho (Shakhtar replaced what Benfica paid Corinthians), Carlos Vinicius and Waldschmidt, here less than 15 million euros invested in Wolfsburg. Surpluses allowed other slots, such as Franco Cervi, Nuno Tavares and Caio Lucas, three players not counted for Jorge Jesus, who were worth more than €15 million for SAD.
