Pedro Caixinha must be one of the busiest managers so far this summer. Rangers are being repeatedly linked to signings, and seriously so, and it’s all being pushed by Caixinha.
Portuguese newspaper O Jogo has a small article in their Sunday edition packed with information about Rangers signings. Caixinha is looking to sign three players from Benfica, and O Jogo believe it’s now just a case of sorting out the details, and then the players being announced at Ibrox.
Fábio Cardoso, a 23 year old central defender, spent last season loan at Vitoria Setubal, and is now lined up for Rangers. Dalcio, a 21 year old Benfica B forward, is put forward as the next player to be joining Cardoso, and his move to Rangers is pencilled in as a season long loan.
Caixinha isn’t stopping there.
Daniel Candeias, a 29 year old winger, spent last season on loan at Turkish club Alanyaspor, and he’s also being lined up for Rangers, although it’s not sure if he’ll move on a loan or permanent basis.
The first two can be completed this week, with Candeias being sorted out afterwards.
O Jogo explain that Caixinha is determined to do all he can to bridge the gap between Rangers and Celtic, and the early summer attempts at recruitment are part of that.
