Benfica wants £89m for Vinicius

birminghammail: Benfica claim to have turned down a huge €60million bid for reported Wolverhampton Wanderers transfer target Carlos Vinicius.

Brazilian striker Vinicius, 25, has been in red-hot form for Benfica this season with 15 goals in 14 Primeira Liga starts and a host of clubs are said to be interested in acquiring him.

It was recently reported that Wolves have identified Vinicius as a potential replacement for star striker Raul Jimenez should the Mexican complete a move away from Molineux this summer.

Wolves’ Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester United have also been heavily linked with the striker, who joined Benfica permanently last summer from Napoli.

His stay in Lisbon is expected to be short-lived but Benfica won’t let him leave on the cheap.

Benfica president Luís Filipe Vieira, speaking to Portuguese outlet BTV, revealed that he’s already turned down a huge bid for Vinicius.

“I received an offer of €60million for Vinícius and did not sell,” he said. “He is priced at €100million (£89m). If it weren’t for the pandemic, Benfica (would have) had two players sold for €100million each.”

The coronavirus pandemic is expected to impact the huge sums of money we’re used to seeing thrown around by the game’s elite in transfer windows.

Wolves’ record deal remains the £32.6million they paid Benfica to sign Jimenez permanently last year.

Carlos Vinicius is a good player but I don’t think he’s worth 100 million Euros even the current selling price (89 million) is too much

Although vinicius is a good player, no reasonable clubs will sign him at that ridiculous price.

Benfica should have sold him when they had the 60 million offer. Now clubs can’t afford such huge transfer offer due to the current situation. He might as well remain in his club.

I don’t think he wants a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers…. The price tag is just to scare them away considering interest from other top clubs… £89 is too much for him

The price tag on him is too much…. Many clubs are currently having financial crises and settling for £89million is practically impossible. Real Madrid can have him
