Benfica wants to take Cabrera from Espanyol

Benfica Blog
Benfica are being linked with Espanyol central defender Leonardo Cabrera according to reports coming from Portugal's dailies. With Espanyol's relegation for next season, Benfica are hoping to land the 29 year old defender from the squad at an affordable price tag with Espanyol's asking price said to be in the €15M range. Cabrera joined Espanyol from Getafe during the recent winter transfer window for €9M and appeared in 38 games across all competitions for both clubs. 
Newly appointed manager Jorge Jesus is said to be the driving force behind the clubs interest in landing the Uruguayan defender who he tried to bring unsuccessfully to former club Flamengo during the 2019 season. Cabrera's strength in aerial duels would be an asset at the club and he could just be the ideal partner for Ruben Dias next season.
