The agent of Benfica striker Oscar Cardozo has confirmed reports linking his client with a move to Parc des Princes.
The Paraguayan is widely tipped to leave the Eagles following yet another impressive season at La Luz, and he has seen his name linked with a host of Europe’s top clubs.
Paris Saint-Germain were thought to be leading the race for the highly rated forward and the player’s representative now confirms the Saints have enquired about his client.
Asked by Le 10 Sport about the real story about PSG and Cardozo, agent Pedro Aldave replied: “There is an interest in the player.”
Benfica are ready to cash in on one of their star players and Aldave admits Cardozo is looking to leave this summer.
“He wants to leave. But, only in the case he is offered better conditions than at Benfica. We are talking about the top foreign scorer in the history of the club.”
The Paraguayan international joined Benfica in a €9.2 million deal from Newell’s Old Boys in June 2007 and has since scored 87 goals in 133 league games for the Eagles.
Cardozo finished last season as top scorer of Portuguese Primeira league with 20 goals in 29 games.
