    I agree with selling Cardozo at that price. As for the Wass deal, you have to remember that he came on a free transfer so whatever Benfica gets for him is profit.

    Why did we sign him? Take a guess who wanted him...Mr. Jesus himself.

    Benfica are loaning out young CB Roderick Miranda and 18 year old midfielder Diego Lopes to Rio Ave.

    Good move for both youngsters to get regular playing time in the Portuguese top flight. Diego Lopes is pretty highly rated, came to Portugal at a very young age from Brazil. Probably will end up playing for Portugal at the youth level in the near future when he gets his citizenship.

    Quaresma and Manuel Fernades on their way to Benfica for $12.5 million!!! That would awesome!!!
    Manny is Benfica's ideal replacement for Witsel says Record and Quaresma to replace Gaitan because Benfica failed to sign Salvio.

    Come on LFV and Rui Costa make this happen!

    He wasn't good defensively, but I liked his passes with Nolito..

    Please please don't let Quaresma come here. Manuel Fernandes with open arms, but not Q. I'm over him completely, I hate seeing him on the National team, the same goes for SLB.

    For LWB, we should go in for Eliseu. Hes Portuguese, fast, strong on the ball, and had decent crossing ability. Benfica literally have a record of transforming mediocre wingers to good wingbacks. Should be a no brainier.

    If we sell Witsel, 100% go in for Manny. I think if he can play at that same level or higher that everyone was accustomed to in Turkey, he will break into the NT and help Benfica win the league.

    Manchestor United want Aimar at 32 years old and offer Benfica 5 million.

    That has to be the funniest transfer rumor this summer so far.

    "Green light to finish Salvio deal." Diego Simeone wants Salvio to stay but Athletico Madrid need money to buy Diego from Wolfsburg. Benfica own 20% of Salvio's rights (2.5m) and can secure him with another 5 million.

    Please just sign the kid and put an end to this saga. JJ, wants Salvio, The fans want Salvio, and Salvio himself wants to return to Benfica.

    Ya I would take that in a heartbeat. He has quality, and I am sure the Benfica coaching management would help him become better defensively

    Benfica interested in Leroy Fer, Twente's Dutch midfielder.

    Real Zaragoza interested in Sidnei.

    Benfica increase bid for Marcos Rojo to 3 million. Spartak asking 4m.

    Players can no longer be loaned to first division teams, only 2nd division. This soccer "law" was just passed in Portugal. With that said David Simão terminated his contract with Benfica because he didn't have room on JJ's team and didn't want to be loaned to a 2nd division team. This is unfortunate, this kid was an amazing midfielder with tons of talent. Soo much potential, but I can understand the situation.

    That sucks, he had so much potential. Now he'll probably end up with Porto or Sporting. -.-

    See its already having an ill effect on the youth systems. Now it can either lead to the Portuguese league becoming more balanced or that talent leaving to another country.

    I think the rule won't last long at all.

    Though I don't necessarily agree with the new rule, it's supposed purpose is to encourage and develop Portuguese youths and discourage buying foreigners. Pretty much targeted at Benfica and Porto buying Brazilians and other South Americans and shipping them on loan.
