Exclusive: Chelsea win the Oscar…
Roman beats AVB to grab £25m Brazil playmaker
Chelsea have pulled off another transfer coup by clinching the signature of £25million Brazilian wonderkid Oscar.
Despite already splashing out £42m on Marko Marin and Eden Hazard, Roman Abramovich’s latest revolution shows no signs of abating after he moved in for the Internacional playmaker who is regarded as one of the most exciting talents to emerge from Brazil in years.
To add further flavour to the European champions’ deal, they have pipped their former manager Andre Villas-Boas in the process.
T*ttenham’s new boss thought he was in a strong position to land 20-year-old Oscar after making an offer last week.
It was reported the bid was £11m, but sources in South America say it was much higher than that and a club-record offer of nearer £18m.
Chelsea, however, have moved quickly to swamp T*ttenham’s offer and beat their former charge to his signature.
