UOL Esporte: Milan reignite interest in signing Benfica forward as rift develops with coach

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are one of the teams who are interested in signing Benfica playmaker Everton Cebolinha, according to a report.

According to UOL Esporte, the future of Cebolinha – also known as Everton Soares – may well be away from Benfica given that the attacking midfielder complained in the Portuguese press about his use by head coach Jorge Jesus, with several European clubs now monitoring his situation having become aware of a potential rift.

They add that Borussia Dortmund and Milan are aware of the tension in the relationship between Everton Cebolinha and Benfica and if the Portuguese club indicate that he could leave then offers may well arrive, with the Rossoneri having been following him since 2019.

Everton in the Premier League are also interested in signing Cebolinha and they are tracking the 25-year-old’s situation too. He has 2 goals and 3 assists in 12 league games for Benfica, where he has struggled to adapt since his move from Gremio in Brazil.
