David Luiz’s signing is not ruled out by Benfica and Plataforma knows is right on the table. However, everything will depend on the departure of Rúben Dias or Ferro.
The 33-year-old Brazilian international has recently revealed his intention to return to Benfica, despite having signed for Arsenal earlier this season. And the truth is that his return is not ruled out and the player also already knows that and even admits leaving the Premier League to play in Portugal, because he has an understanding with the gunners that allows him to leave the London club at the end of this time.
But for this possibility to be realized, one of the current defenders of the center of defense, Rúben Dias or Ferro, will have to leave. Interested in both there are a few, specifically in Rúben Dias, namely Everton and Tottenham, both from England.
The direction of Benfica, however, prefers the sale of Ferro, given that Luís Filipe Vieira would like to make Rúben Dias the new image of the club da Luz, a little like the image of Luisão, who despite the greed remained in the Portuguese club for 15 years. And that is the will of the president of the Lisbon emblem. Difficult to achieve, given Rúben Dias’ dream of playing in other leagues, but Luís Filipe Vieira will try to hold him back.
If one of them leaves then, David Luiz’s return may be, in fact, a real possibility, Plataforma knows. Both parties, clubs and player, are in contact.
But the reinforcements for the center of the defense of the reds may not even stop here, given that the German Robin Koch, from Friborg, is also one of those of interest to the Portuguese emblem. Jardel, captain of Benfica, will also be able to leave and thus open up a new vacancy in the sector further back.
