Benfica looking to spend big in Real Madrid
Benfica could be about to break their club record for money spent on a single player.
The current record stands at 22 million euros, when they bought the full economic rights of Raul Jimenez, who they signed from Atletico Madrid in 2015.
That record could be about to be broken though, with Benfica looking to bring in reinforcements this summer to bolster their squad and make a go of it in the Champions League.
And one man that they're very interested in signing is Real Madrid striker Raul de Tomas.
De Tomas, 24, has only ever played for Real Madrid once having come through their youth academy, but had a successful loan spell at Rayo Vallecano last season, where he found the back of the net 14 times in 33 La Liga appearances.
That is perhaps made even more impressive when you consider that Rayo Vallecano finished in 20th place in the league last season; to score 14 goals for a side that end up getting relegated tells you all you need to know about his qualities - and you would imagine that in a better side his goal return would only improve.
He spent the season earlier at Rayo Vallecano too when his side were in La Liga 2, and his return was understandably even better, getting 24 goals in 32 appearances.
Real Madrid are currently looking to get €25million for the 24-year old Spaniard, a fee which would make him Benfica's most expensive signing in history.
