Benfica win chase for Andre Carrillo

Portuguese giants Benfica have agreed a deal to sign Peruvian winger Andre Carrillo from rivals Sporting CP, according to A Bola.

The highly rated footballer will join the Eagles when his current contract expires in June, having accepted a five-year contract worth €2 million per campaign, while he also secured a €2.5m signing bonus.

Benfica did well to win the race for the player’s signature as Carrillo was also on the radar of FC Porto, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Valencia.

The capture of one of their rivals’ leading players will serve as revenge on the Lions for signing former Benfica coach Jorge Jesus last summer.

After refusing to sign a new contract with Sporting CP, Carrillo was suspended by the club and forbidden from entering the training facilities.

Such a decision by the Lions all but ended their hopes of selling the Peruvian in the January window, and paved way for Benfica to sign him on a free transfer.
