Manchester City tell Benfica they can pay €35m for midfielder –…

first_imgManchester City have opened talks for the signing of Florentino Luís from Benfica, according to Portuguese newspaper A Bola today. After scouting the player at the Estádio da Luz, the Premier League side would have approached the Eagles to speak about the figures of a possible transaction.A Bola claims that Manchester City are willing to pay €35m to take the 19-year-old to England now, but that’s still far from what Benfica are demanding.The Lisbon side are using the player’s €60m release clause as a reference, and to let him go now they would like to get €50m up front plus €10m in performance bonuses.Embed from Getty ImagesAnother demand made by Benfica is that the player stays in Portugal for one more year, to play the 2019/20 season for the Eagles. But in that case, they would accept Manchester City to pay the amount in several installments.Manchester City’s reaction to the demands is still not revealed. They know that this second option would work more like a reservation for the player, while he would have more time to develop in Portugal, and have more playing time than he would have at the Premier League side.In case Pep Guardiola’s side don’t move now, Benfica are set to offer the youngster a new contract, which would raise his release clause to €120m.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comWhere do attractive singles find each other in Tung Chung?Dating.comUndoPerfect-Dating.comAre You Ready to Meet Cool Guys in Tung Chung?Perfect-Dating.comUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystWill Blockchain Reduce the Global Trade Finance Gap to Reach the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals?StanChart by CNBC CatalystUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50UndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndolast_img read more
