Carlos Vinicius joins Benfica
Carlos Vinicius has completed his move to Benfica.
The 24-year old signs a long-term contract with the club until 2024, joining from Napoli for a fee of 17 million euros.
His contract also includes a 100 million euro release clause.
The Brazilian forward spent the first half of last season on loan at Rio Ave, and was highly impressive, grabbing 14 goals - and 2 assists - in 20 matches across all competitions for the mid-table Primeira Liga club.
His impressive endeavours in Portugal meant that he was recalled from his loan from Napoli, and sent instead to Monaco for the remainder of the campaign.
That stint in France didn’t prove as productive though, as he was given just 511 minutes of action across 16 league games - that’s an average of just 32 minutes a game.
