The incarnates ensured Diogo Almeida, Paços de Ferreira striker, triggering his termination clause.
Benfica have secured the signing of 19-year-old forward Diogo Almeida who has been betting this season by Paços de Ferreira. From what the GAME found out, the incarnates secured the spearhead, international under-20 by Portugal, covering its termination clause: 500 thousand euros. As for the agreement with the athlete, it is also already defined, with the youngster being linked to the eagles for five seasons, that is, until 2024.
The only detail yet to be defined is whether the striker performs at Seixal at the market reopening in January or next season. Shortage of training requires this type of recruitment
Diogo Almeida will reinforce the incarnated staff, just to define if he will perform at the new club in January or will be at the service of pacenses until the end of the season. Paços de Ferreira, you know THE GAME, was informed in late August that the eagles would carry one of their great promises, which had already been entered by the senior team in January last season to help Vítor Oliveira's team in the fight for promotion to the highest echelon. However, Diogo Almeida had to wait for this season to make his debut in the first lineup, after impressive numbers by the beavers' juniors in 2018/19: the youngster scored 19 goals in 27 matches.
Although still young, Diogo Almeida has had several stages of growth, having trained at Pinguinzinho, Lusitano de Vildemoinhos, Tondela, Espinho, Empoli (Italy), before arriving at Paços de Ferreira.
With Diogo Almeida, Benfica have strengthened their positions with the seventh young striker since the beginning of the year, a position that the structure understands to be a lack in the various teams that are in Seixal. Isailovic (Valladolid), Vasco Paciencia (Boavista), João Borges (Berço FC) and Pedro Henrique (Leixões) arrived in January, João Resende (V. Guimarães) at the start of this season and Molnar (Honved) was made official this week. This, incidentally, debuted yesterday by juniors against Belenenses.
