Cardozo targeted as Tevez replacement

Friday 28 June 2013

Benfica striker Oscar Cardozo is being targeted by several Premier League clubs, with Manchester City identifying him as a possible replacement for Carlos Tevez, reports the Daily Mail.

Tevez recently left the Etihad Stadium to join Juventus, and with new City boss Manuel Pelligrini missing out on prime transfer target Isco, to Real Madrid, attention now turns to pursuing other potential signings. Cardozo has scored goals for Benfica on a very consistent basis in his six years with the club, including 31 in 2012-13.


Man City are currently short of strikers, with Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko their only senior frontmen after a six-month period which has seen Tevez and Mario Balotelli leave for Italy. After signing attacking midfielders Fernandinho and Jesus Navas, a striker such as Cardozo, or Napoli’s Edinson Cavani - also rumoured to be a target - now looks City’s top priority.


Cardozo fell out with his manager, Jorge Jesus, after Benfica narrowly lost out to FC Porto in the race for the Portuguese title. Now, according to reports, Benfica may be willing to accept a bid in the region of £17m for the 30-year-old, who still has three more years to run on his current contract.
