"Grimaldo is one of the best five left-backs in Europe"
Benfica have been delighted with Alejandro Grimaldo for a long time. The director general made this obvious this Wednesday in comments to 'Sky Sports'.
"For me, Grimaldo is one of the best five left-backs in Europe. Many Benfica players are ready to, some day, play in a world class team. Grimaldo is good enough to play for any side right now," Pinto said.
The footballer who came through the Barcelona academy, is now on the radar of big clubs like Juventus and Tottenham. He has even been linked with a move to Barca in the future even more so now Jordi Alba is being questioned.
Nevertheless, Benfica are in a good position because they recently renewed the player's contract until 2023.
