Paraguay international Oscar Cardozo has spent six years with Benfica, but the Portuguese side seems destined to move him elsewhere.

When Oscar Cardozo arrived at Benfica on June 21, 2007, fans had never heard of him. After six years with the club, Cardozo is not only a well known name, but he has managed to earn himself a spot in Benfica's history books.

He may not be the quickest, or the flashiest, but his ability to put the ball in the back of the net has made up for what ever he may lack. Missing the occasional tap in is something he can be accused of, but more often than not, he tends to bounce back from that let down.

From his 161 goals scored for the Lisbon side, all of that went out the window after the final whistle against Vitoria Guimaraes in the Portuguese Cup Final.
