There’s no holding back the Portuguese media. After Victor Lindelof said goodbye to Benfica more than once, according to their claims, and a deal was agreed to take the player to Manchester United, the defender stayed where he is.
Still, it seems Benfica want some transfer money, and the player now saying goodbye to fans is 20 year old Goncalo Guedes.
On Saturday A Bola reported talks had ‘significantly advanced’ with Benfica in England hoping to sell the player to Manchester United, with other options also present for his sale.
Jorge Mendes is said to be involved, of course, but once again this looks like Benfica looking to sell a player rather than Manchester United actively looking to buy one.
As we pointed out yesterday, Manchester United are well stocked in the young-forward-who-can-also-play-on-the-wing department.
Nevertheless, Record report the player’s exit is ‘imminent’ and Guedes may not be involved for Benfica on Sunday despite being in the match-day-squad.
Record reckon Manchester United and PSG are tussling for the player, which sounds like wishful thinking.
Benfica are prepared to sell Goncalo Guedes for €30m.
