Benfica come clean over terms of Roberto move to Real Zaragoza

Benfica came clean over the sale of goalkeeper Roberto to Real Zaragoza.

Benfica announced on Monday evening they had sold Roberto to Zaragoza for €8.6 million, which sparked controversy in both countries, as the Spanish club have debts which amount to €110m and have asked for legal protection to be able to continue their operations.

The Portuguese stock market soon suspended Benfica the club's shares until a detailed explanation was provided.

This forced Benfica to reveal Zaragoza paid just €86,000 for the keeper, while the remaining €8,514,000 was purchased by an investment fund.
