Record: Benfica midfielder waiting for decision from coach with Milan continuing to lurk

By Oliver Fisher -

Benfica midfielder Florentino Luis is waiting for a decision from his head coach before planning his own future, according to a report.

The Rossoneri’s midfield department looks set to undergo changes this summer, as the only two defensive midfielders to have a certain place in the squad next season are Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer, while Biglia has left and Rade Krunic is attracting interest from Torino. Lucas Paqueta could also leave.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reported earlier today that Milan have not given up on the idea of signing Florentino to reinforce the midfield, who is valued at €30million by Benfica, who would also be willing to accept alternative formulas such as a loan with option/obligation to buy.

According to reports from the Portuguese newspaper Record (via MilanNews), the 20-year-old is waiting to know the decision of his head coach Jorge Jesus on the role he will have at Benfica next season.

Essentially, he wants to understand if the new coach will focus on him or not, and if the answer is the latter then he is likely to try and force a move.
