If rumours making the rounds is anything to go by, then Chelsea are set to lose their Brazilian star Oscar to Juventus after spending just three years with the EPL champions.
This is according to reports from The Sun which claimed that Chelsea have agreed a record breaking deal of £69millions with Italian giants Juventus for the services of their young star Paul Pogba. It is believed to be a cash plus player deal which will see Juventus take either of Oscar, Cuadrado or Willian as part of the deal.
It is no longer news that the Old Lady had initially contacted Chelsea for the services of Oscar but their interest was turned down by the the Blues’ boss Jose Mournho who claimed the 23-year old star is not for sale. But with the recent development, I am very sure the old lady would pick Oscar over the other two alternatives if they are to sell Pogba to Chelsea.
Oscar moved to Chelsea in 2012 at the age of 20 from Brazilian side Internacional and had developed to become a force to rekon with in the Chelsea’s squad. The young midfielder has scored a total of 31 goals in 153 appearances for the Blues.
Oscar is the first player to score for the Blues this season with a superb free kick in their 2-2 draw against Swansea in Chelsea EPL opening match at SW6.
