Murillo will be part of Benfica squad for preseason matchup vs. Real Betis next Thursday

I wouldn't expect any news of a Murillo transfer shortly. He is expected to be training with Benfica on Monday in Seixal.

Seixal, a resort area, is where Benfica's preseason training takes place. 

The training is to prepare for a preseason matchup with Spanish side Real Betis on Thursday.

From the Record in Portugal:


Venezuelan International with indefinite future
On Monday, when Benfica starts preparing for the game with Betis, Rui Vitoria will be able to count on four more players to play in Seixal. Zivkovic, Samaris, Joao Carvalho, and Jhon Murillo.
The 22-year-old Venezuelan international, after finishing the season in Tondela, also served in the respective national team and was therefore allowed to appear later. Despite returning to Luz, the future of the player is still unknown because there are several possible solutions to be decided in the team office. One of the solutions on the table is another loan of the player who, in the last two seasons, was on loan with Tondela.
Last week the Columbus Crew made an offer for the player, but the figures presented did not convince SAD officials.
Therefore, the decision that Murillo was hoping to be made on his future for Benfica this weekend, either on loan or otherwise, was not made. 
The decision has been made instead to keep him in house currently.
