Benfica striker Oscar Cardozo is close to leaving the Portuguese outfit, according to his agent.

The agent of Benfica striker Oscar Cardozo has revealed that his client will not return to the Portuguese outfit for pre-season training.

The 30-year-old, who scored 33 goals for Benfica last season, has been strongly linked with a move to Cardiff City in recent weeks.

"His transfer will certainly be finalised before July 17. He will not return to Benfica for pre-season," his representative Pedro Aldave told O Jogo.

"We are very advanced but I prefer not to go into more details."

A number of European clubs are also reported to be monitoring proceedings.
