Huge blow if confirmed. Too late to find replacements.

Absolutely massive loss, must say I like this from the perspective of a rival.

Lima also in, Michel/Kardec/Sidnei to Braga, Silvio on loan(?), bunch of other shit... very busy day for you guys.

If you're taking someone from Braga, it should be that Ismaeili kid. This kid can play.

Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.

The race is long, and in the end - it's only with yourself.

They just got him from Olhanense this summer. Benfica will have to wait until next summer at least.

I can't disagree. Especially when early reports had the deal @ 30. SLB will spend the fall with a thin defense & too many attackers. Matic will get his chance. If he flops, will be interesting if JJ switches formation versus just plugging another player into that role.

I don't understand picking up Lima if we're keeping Cardozo, both 29 years old, one will have to sit unless Lima plays the Saviola role that had been given to Rodrigo.

As for Javi, Matic is not a #6, different ways of playing, we need a Javi vs Braga, Porto and Sporting.

I don't agree that they're throwing in the towel, this was a good amount of money for a #6 whom we paid 7Mil for and got 3.4 mil right back, in the end he'll net us a good 12 or so after we pay 4 to Benfica Stars Fund then another 2.4Milion Euro if everything in the contract is fulfilled.

What puzzles me is Lima, why get him if Cardozo is still here?
Don't the Eastern markets close later? Perhaps he's on the move to Russia or the Ukraine?

Also, Nolito to Atletico Madrid on loan. He had a good start to the season last year, seemed to drop down the depth chart, and now doesn't count in JJ's plans at all. Odd.

Yeah, you're right bro, I was just going through the official player registration stuff on the league website today... nothing. Nolito stays with you guys and Silvio stays with Benfica. That likely would have been your starting LB. No Silvio, no Eliseu... Melgarejo better keep learning fast.

By the way, in case anybody wants to check all the league registrations from today:

So the Silvio x Nolito deal fell through, I saw Silvio as a back up for Maxi and either starter on the left or back up for him too. The only thing that puzzles me is that Lima was picked up when Cardozo's here, no way that Lima will start over takuara, I'm thinking that the Eastern market is still open and Russia or Ukraine might be calling.

Yeah, 4 days to go until the Russian market closes and that's why I'm not totally convinced Hulk/Moutinho stay for sure. Cardozo could also go to one of those clubs, who knows. Focus goes back to league action this weekend, though.

i dont know about lima not playing ahead of cardozo ...cardozo is way too "fixed", and has a poor ball reception, not to mention that he is useless when it comes to making a pass.

Lima is more versatile

im really really concerned about javi leavinng though...are we left with matic alone?! not only is he not as solid as we have no back up in case he cant play!

Axel Witsel to Zenit for 40m Euro (buyout clause)

Crazy day, Zenit came to Portugal and dropped off 100m, taking both Hulk and Witsel.

Zenit activated the 40m Euro buyout clause in Witsel's deal and off he goes.

Accoding to MF, you offered him a new deal and tried to convince him to stay today, but no luck. Seems the money of the Russians is too much for these guys.

--

De acordo com o que Maisfutebol apurou, os responsáveis do Benfica tudo fizeram para tentar manter o jogador.

Luís Filipe Vieira chegou a oferecer-se a renovação, aumento de salário e subida da cláusula de rescisão. Witsel ainda hesitou, mas acabou por aceitar a oferta milionária do Zenit.


--

Midfield now has no Witsel and no Javi Garcia. Carlos Martins and Matic pairing... anybody else even in the squad? JJ can't be happy!
