AS Roma Eyes Johnny Cardoso from Betis

Johnny Cardoso has resurfaced on AS Roma’s radar, as reports from diariodesevilla.es indicate the Giallorossi are actively exploring a potential move for the American midfielder currently with Betis. The club has reportedly initiated discussions with Cardoso’s representatives to gauge the feasibility of a transfer.

Cardoso, born in 2001, has attracted interest from several European giants including PSG and Juventus, reaffirming his rising profile in the football world. AS Roma’s interest in the midfielder dates back to 2022 under former sporting director Pinto, highlighting their long-standing admiration for his talent.

Betis, open to offers, values Cardoso between €25-30 million, considering his contract extends until 2029 with an €80 million release clause. Recently, Galatasaray made a bid of €18 million plus bonuses, which was rejected by the Spanish club.

As negotiations unfold, AS Roma aims to secure the promising midfielder who could bolster their midfield options significantly.
