Reports have linked the Paraguay international with a move to the Premier League, with Manchester City and Cardiff City said to be among those keen on doing a deal.

Quotes attributed to Bluebirds boss Malky Mackay over the weekend suggested that he was planning a big-money bid.

Cardiff have, however, moved to distance themselves from an audacious approach, and Cardozo's representative admits no agreement is close.

Pedro Aldave has also suggested that the prolific 30-year-old old could now end up staying put, having previously hinted that a summer transfer was all but wrapped up.

He told Diario de Noticias: "Is he certain to join Cardiff next season? I am not aware of such information.

"Cardozo will be in Lisbon on 17th July to start pre-season training at Benfica, where he wants to stay."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
