Napoli sell Vinicius to Benfica

Napoli have agreed to sell Carlos Vinicius Morais to Benfica for €17m, according to the latest reports.

It was a transfer that raised eyebrows for €4m from Portuguese club Real Sport Clube in the summer of 2018, as the striker never actually played for Napoli.

The 24-year-old had loan spells at Rio Ave and Monaco, scoring 14 goals in 20 games for the Portuguese side and two goals in 16 French appearances.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Vinicius is on the move again and has already left the training camp to join Benfica for €17m.

The original deal saw Napoli owe Real Sport Clube 50 per cent of any future transfer fee and and claimed this had all been orchestrated by super-agent Jorge Mendes.
