Oscar Cardozo: Could be heading for Fenerbahce

It was revealed earlier this week that Cardozo's future was set to be decided in the coming weeks, and he had been linked with a possible switch to the Premier League.

Manchester City and Cardiff were both understood to be keeping tabs on the 30-year-old Paraguay international.

However, Fenerbahce always appeared in pole position for his signature and a deal now looks close.

"The negotiations between the two clubs are going well and the agreement is practically closed. There are only a few details to be resolved," his agent Pedro Aldave is quoted by Turkish website Fanatik.

"His signing could come at any time," he added.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
