In short, what is certain, what is certain is that Benfica will attack a goalkeeper (Brazilian Bento, from Atlético Paranaense, not the only one, but one of the strongest possibilities), left-back (also Brazilian Renan Lodi, from Atletico Madrid, who is now loaned to Nottingham Forest, of the English Premier League, is on the checklist) and an attacking midfielder (that is, a more outstanding player, creative/unbalanced player, in the line of players like Rafa., Neres or Joao Mario).
The idea is to guarantee three more reinforcements (which is a certain number from what A BOLA found), and try to replace, then, every player who comes to leave Luz, anyway, to ensure a stronger one. the team. Who won the 38th championship title for the Reds?
