He was in very good form, but ended up falling apart due to Villacondenses' whim: the Portuguese Under-21 international, on loan from Benfica to Famalicao, will not be joining Luis Freire's side.
The information emerged this Sunday and Zero confirmed it. There was interest from all sides and the athlete was not even registered for Famalicao's last match. Keen to get more minutes and a greater advantage, he welcomed the move to Rio Ave, which he also expressed his appreciation for.
Why didn't the deal happen? From what we've learned, it's all about the uncertainty of different transfers in the same season, under new FIFA regulations, and everything that could mean. Just doubts, not certainties.
Due to problems of this nature, where they were unable to register players in recent transfer windows, Rio Ave chose not to take the risk and the deal did not go ahead.
Therefore, at this point Henrique Araujo is likely to continue at Famalicao. A move to another team is still on the table for Benfica, who want to make a sporting profit for the striker in another way, but there are not many alternative solutions.
Therefore, since the market is very fertile for last minute moves, the most certain thing on this date is the continuation of Henrique Araújo under the orders of João Pedro Sousa.
