Free State Stars initially turned down an offer from the
Glamour Boys that was said to be in the region of R2m but the Soweto Giants
returned with an improved fee.
It is believed that the player has finally put pen to paper
after being convinced to make the move during a successful round of talks with
Cardoso made his Bafana debut in a 3-1 victory over
Swaziland in March this year after his performances for Ea Lla Koto caught the
eye of coach Shakes Mashaba.
Chiefs are yet to officially confirm the signing of the
versatile defender. They are, however, expected to do so in their press conference
on Tuesday. That same day could turn out to be a big day for Cardoso as he is
expecting to be named Mashaba’s Bafana squad for the Afcon qualifiers in which
Bafana take on Gabon.
With the resignation of Stuart Baxter and the ongoing saga
around their inability to secure contract extensions for some of their star
players, the Cardoso signing should be music to the ears of Chiefs fans.
