Asked by TVI about how Benfica didn't eventually sign Italian goalkeeper Mattia Perin (26) from Juventus, Aguias chairman, Luis Filipe Vieira, stated: "Nothing like that ever happened to us. We flew to Italy, we accomplished a full-on agreement with Juventus, then same went with Perin, who was ready to put ink to paper on a 5-year deal. Then something turned out wrong, during the medical tests. It was bad, for both the player and us. We liked Perin a lot, but it's highly unlikely we are going to pursue him again".
