You really think Benfica doesn't have money? The only reason this is happening is the fact that there's a new Director in town. LFV was & is a bum when it comes to transfers.. we all should know that by now. It's about time they dumped the millions they make into the team.
Just so people get an idea of how much money Benfica has had & has.. Just 4 years ago they were ranked 20th in all of Soccer in revenue. They were the first Portuguese team to break into the top 20 ever. And just last year as matter of fact Benfica was labeled the 17th most valuable soccer brand in all of Europe. Look it up. They have money, don't be fooled into thinking Benfica is struggling. Not in the least bit.
