Liverpool target set to sign new Benfica deal

Cardozo’s current contract with Benfica is set to expire in the summer of 2014, while his new deal will keep him in Portugal until the summer of 2016.

The 28-year-old’s agent, Pedro Aldave, told O Jogo: “The kid is happy in Benfica and it will be normal to stay there, but it is necessary to settle more details.”

Cardozo was strongly linked with a move to Liverpool this summer.
