@SLBenfica loan to @Brondy #Germany Hany Mukhtar not for sale for less then 45 million euros @Benfica

The good season of Hany Mukhtar at the service of Brondby of Denmark (26 games and 6 goals) led the Nordic club officials to settle for the definitive purchase of the pass of the German midfielder, who is loaned by Benfica until the end of the season.

German news has emerged that says the 21-year-old could be sold for € 1.5m, but Mukhtar's representative, Paulo Rodrigues, has denied this scenario in exclusive statements to zerozero.

"I do not believe that after the excellent season that Mukhtar is doing at Brondby, Benfica sells them at a price of 1.5 million euros," said the Portuguese agent, recalling that the German international U20 A clause of EUR 45 million. '

"I do not believe that Benfica, who knows how to sell players to the international market, sells below 10 million euros," added Paulo Rodrigues, who trusts Hany Mukhtar's potential. "I'm confident that we can bet on next season at Benfica and be ready to play for the Rui Vitoria team."

Accusations against German agent
Another subject clarified by Paulo Rodrigues was the entrance of Florian Goll, a German businessman who has been speaking on behalf of the Benfica midfielder.

"Mukhtar and his family did not even know him and he [Florian Goll] was not even present at the signing of the contract with Benfica. The representatives of Mukhar are two: the father and I, and until he [Mukhtar] tells me otherwise, it does not change », he shot.
