THE BALL – Grimaldo more difficult continuity (Benfica)

Entering the last year of his contract with Benfica – it ends in July 2023 – Grimaldo, the 26-year-old left-back, has been one of the reds’ most coveted assets and the Italian press claims that Juventus have him. also on the list. list of potential targets for the reopening of the market next summer.

The echo of interest from Juventus joins the already known special interest from Barcelona, ​​where Grimaldo trained and still has admirers, including the Catalans’ coach Xavi Hernandez.

On the table is still the possibility of Grimaldo renewing with Benfica, but the full-back already has a very high salary and the Reds may not be able to offer him much more, not least because the order for Luz is to reduce the sheet. salary. of the workforce and not to increase it.

Anyway, Grimaldo has already made it known that he feels good and has opened the door to negotiation. However, for SAD, it may be more attractive to sell the athlete’s pass already in the summer, taking into account that it will enter the last year of the contract and that a future exit at zero cost may be in Thu. Grimaldo has a termination clause of €60m, but it seems logical that there is receptivity to proposals between €15m and €20m.
