Benfica had a great run in the UEFA Champions League last season and their performances have seen their players receive much individual praise and recognition in the current summer transfer market place.
Nicolas Gaitan was a long standing target of Manchester United, just as Axel Witsel has also been in recent weeks. Gaitan’s move completely looks to have fallen apart, but another player on the squad looks ready for a massive move.
The latest news for the club is the interest of Chelsea, Everton and most recently Juventus in Benfica’s star forward, Oscar Cardozo. According to TalkSport both English side Chelsea and Everton are fighting a hard bargain to sign the player.
The real news is that Juventus have joined the race now and could outbid all competition in hopes of pairing Cardozo with Robin Van Persie who the club has already claimed to have signed according to the Daily Mail with final details still pending.
