At the end of august SL Benfica bought Svilar for €2,5m, now the president confirms he already refused a €10m offer.
Svilar’s career is starting with ups and downs, but everybody sees his great potential. At the age of 18, he became Benfica’s nr. 1 and the youngest goalkeeper in the UEFA Champions League.
In a long interview with BTV, president Luis Filipe Vieira says: “We already received a €10m offer, including a two season loan for Mile Svilar. But our young goalie is not for sale. Svilar is only 18 and is only focussed on SL Benfica.”
