Chelsea are close to pulling off another major transfer by signing Brazilian wonderkid Oscar. The young starlet has since been followed by many of the top clubs around the world including Real Madrid, but Tottenham were reported to be frontrunners to sign the Midfielder. Since then, the European Champions have moved fast to table a bid of around £25 Million Pounds to outbid the Andre Villas-Boas’ Spurs.
Oscar is also regarded as one of the most sought after young players in Europe and most definitely an important player in Di Matteo’s plans.
The deal is yet to be completed, as there are terms that need to be finalized between the club and player. Oscar’s playing style is similar to Juan Mata, which provides much more creativity and attacking flair to the Midfield.
Sealing this transfer signing will most definitely send a message out to next season’s competitors that Chelsea are serious in defending their Champions League trophy.
This is surely an exciting signing and a player to watch in the future.
