Sale of Enzo Fernández to Chelsea helps get the eagles’ accounting out of the red.
It will be on Wednesday that the Benfica SAD will make known the results of the exercise started on July 1, 2022 and ended on June 30 of this year. According to O JOGO, this will be the first moment of positive accounts since Rui Costa took over the presidency, counting (and a lot) for that fact the millionaire sale of Enzo Fernández to Chelsea for 121 million euros, but which generated a gain of around the 80 million euros.
After informing the Securities Market Commission, the reds must publish the accounts on their website, which will confirm a closing in green after the red one, of loss, recorded in 2021/22, with a negative 35 million euros, and of the 13 .3 million loss recorded in the first half of the financial year now ended. Everything will change in this second semester, mainly due to the sale of the Argentine midfielder, negotiated in January, after the end of the first six months, which increases the transfer pool in this period to around 167 million.
The almost 80 million in reinforcements will thus be compensated – David Neres and Bah entered the previous one, for example, and this value may even be lower if any transfer has been advanced in accounting for the next financial year. This list will include, for example, the purchases of Enzo, Aursnes, João Victor, Tengstedt and Schjelderup.
There are more recipes to color the beads. In the first half, for example, the sums received by the campaign in the Champions League, totaling 72.5 million, plus box office and publicity, did not enter.
