Inter released a statement on the clubs official homepage that Gabriel “Gabigol” Barbosa has been loaned to Portuguese outfit Benfica for the upcoming season. According to the statement the Portuguese outfit has an option to make the deal permanent should they decide to exercise that option.

Gabriel Barbosa signed for Inter in August 2016 for a reported transfer fee of €30 million and has failed to stake a place with the Nerazzurri during the last season. Inter are reportedly looking to recouperate most of that sum should Gabigol be a success with Benfica as the Portguese outfit will have to pay Inter €28 million to make the transfer permanent.

    Prediction gabi scores ten goals 5 assist return in seats candreva

    Hate to see him leave and how we really didn’t even give him a chance or start a game. The upcoming game vs SPAL would have been good to start him and rest Candreva. Now we had to go out and get a replacement in Karamoh, for what him to sit on the bench until he adjusts to the league?

    Best of luck to both

    28m€ would make him by far the most expensive Benfica signing of all time, so he would have to be a massive success before they take that option i think.

    On the other hand, Benfica are extremely good at finding players to sell on for profit a few years later so they probably know what they are doing here. Over the last 3 seasons Benfica have a positive balance from transfers (outgoing minus incoming) by over 200m€.

    So we’re getting our money back plus have a sell on clause too ensuring us money if they sell him on. Got job Ausilio

      Only if they choose to buy him and not floop again.

        True, otherwise he´ll return only 21 years old and he still would have enough time to develop
