Porto could complete a good start of the season, achieving the greatest objective of qualifying to the final round of the Champions League. The team coached by Sergio Conceiçao ended second in UCL group C, after earning 13 points out of six games played. This way, they advance to the next round along Manchester City and eliminating Olympiacos and Olympique Marseille.

One of the greatest players for the Portuguese side this season was Jesús Corona, known as Tecatito. The attacker played 16 matches, scoring two goals and giving six assists. He was one of the best ones, but it was not enough to perform well at Liga NOS, where the team is third with 19 points, behind Sporting Lisboa (23) and Benfica (21).

Looking forward to make better next season, Porto is trying to sign who one day was one of the best strikers of the world. He is Mario Mandzukic, the Croatian striker aged 34 who is a free agent after leaving Al-Duhail SC on July of this year. After almost six months without playing, there are chances for him to move to a top European team now.

Mandzukic was formed at Ditzingen and then played for Bayern Munich, Juventus, Atlético de Madrid, VfL Wolsfburg, Marsonia, Zelkeznicar, NK Zagreb, Dinamo Zagreb and Al-Duhail SC. With 497 matches played in his professional career, he scored 197 goals and gave 84 assists. With Tecatito Corona, he could conform an incredible attack at Porto.
