‘Feyenoord lifts revenue to seventy million: deal with Benfica imminent outcome’

Chances are that Fredrik Aursnes left Feyenoord before closing the market. His transfer to Benfica seemed to be stagnating, but Fabrizio Romano states that the transition is almost complete.
Romano will be a guest at VTBL on Monday evening and clarifies Aursnes‘s situation there. โ€œThe deal is coming,โ€ he says. โ€œBenfica is waiting for Benfica to sell midfielder Julian Weigl.โ€ The German midfielder has been pushing for a departure since the arrival of Roger Schmidt and it is still waiting for that. โ€œAfter that, the transfer can be sealed. The player has already given his yes to Benfica and Schmidt. The clubs are ready to close the deal.โ€
Recently, it became known that fifteen million euros would be paid for the Norwegian upon departure. According to Romano, the amount is lower. โ€œIt’
s about thirteen million euros, plus bonuses,โ€ he says. When the deal actually comes, the Stadionclub sold for more than seventy million euros this summer. FC Twente player Ramiz Zerrouki is considered an important candidate to succeed Aursnes.
