Benfica risk missing out on Boavista keeper Helton Leite

Benfica could miss out on signing Boavista goalkeeper Helton Leite after a stalemate in talks, Record reports.

The 29-year-old Brazilian has already agreed personal terms with Benfica, while agent fees have also been settled.

However, Benfica president Luís Filipe Vieira wants to close the deal for just €1m, below Boavista’s asking price.

Benfica’s reluctance to raise their bid has given hope to other suitors for the talented Helton Leite.

Clubs from La Liga and Ligue 1 have offers on the table for Helton Leite which would be more profitable for Boavista.

Boavista had given priority to Benfica but with the player entering the final year of his contract, have grown impatient.

The Primeira Liga side won’t let talks with Benfica drag on for much longer and intend to conclude negotiations quickly.
