Even though there was not as strong a rumour linking Joan Capdevila to FC Barcelona as was in the case of Jose Angel, nonetheless any chance of seeing the Spain international and former Villarreal left back to the club can be out ruled as Capdevila has joined Portuguese club Benfica. The 33-year-old Catalan defender has moved to Lisbon on a two-year deal with a buy-out clause of 20 million euros. Capdevila comes in place of Fabio Coentrao, who recently joined Real Madrid. The transfer fee hasn’t yet been disclosed.
