Benfica have completed the signing of Raul Jimenez from Atletico Madrid as he joins the Portuguese Champions for an undisclosed fee.
Raul Jimenez joined Atletico Madrid last season but failed to break into the first team and endured a sticky spell as Diego Simeone was only able to feature the Mexico international 21 times and only four times in his starting line up. Jimenez was set for a move as soon as the transfer window opened but thought long and hard about his decision before choosing to joint Benfica who are preparing for the immenent departure of Nico Gaitan in the nearest future.
