Benfica has offloaded another Portuguese talent. Valencia scored the 21 year-old for something between 12-15 million Euros.
My first reaction: wtf is Benfica doing?
My second reaction: Camacho must be at least mildly impressed with Adu to sell Fernandes.
We'll just have to see what happens on Sept. 2nd when Nacional hosts Benfica. According to the poorly-updated uefa.com Benfica profile, Fernandes' sale leaves Benfica's midfield terribly shorthanded with just five mids to their name. Then again, Freddy's listed as a forward so there's bound to be some mix and match.
