Di María, en Benfica hasta 2015

El argentino renovó su contrato por seis años más; la cláusula de rescisión se aumentó a 40 millones de euros

LISBOA (DPA).- El argentino ngel Di María renovó su contrato con Benfica hasta 2015, anunció hoy el club de fútbol portugués.

El vínculo original de Di María vencía en 2012, pero el club y el jugador estimaron que era el momento adecuado para prolongarlo tres años años más.

La cláusula de rescisión se aumentó a 40 millones de euros (58,40 millones de dólares).

El centrocampista ofensivo llegó a las “guilas Rojas” en 2007 producto de su gran actuación en el Mundial sub-20 de ese año, disputado en Canadá, en el que Argentina se consagró campeón.

    good for him i guess, but i have to wonder if he’ll really stay there that long. I know Mourinho has mentioned bringing him to Inter, and im sure some spanish sides could become interested if he continues playing the way he is. i saw him play in the europa league yesterday, and even though they lost, he was the best player around. set up cardoza perfectly, but el paraguayo missed a lay up. he also linked up really well with saviola

    Even though he’s become a fan favorite in Benfica, if the money is right I don’t think Benfica would have a problem with selling him.

    I would like to see him play in Spain or in a more important league than Portugal.

    I watched the game yesterday, Sebastian Saja was superb, he saved at least 3-4 goals. It’s too bad that Saja never got a chance with the national team.
