Portuguese UEFA Champions League hopefuls SL Benfica have added another name to their roster after concluding a deal to sign Miguelito from CD Nacional.

Player agrees terms
The two clubs had agreed a package for the 25-year-old left-back several days ago, but the player did not settle on personal terms until today. Miguelito is expected to arrive at the Estádio da Luz on Thursday and will put pen to paper on a four-year contract. Benfica reached the UEFA Champions League group stage on Tuesday night, completing a 4-1 aggregate win against FK Austria Wien.
