Chelsea have had a £20 million pound bid accepted for Brazilian starlet Oscar, according to Goal.com, and the transfer is all but completed.
All that is left to do now is to finalise terms between club and player. Chelsea fans have been generally excited about the arrival of the 20-year-old Brazilian playmaker, and many see him as just the type of player Chelsea’s midfield need.
The deal will anger officials within the Tottenham ranks, who have allegedly bid £15 million for the midfielder, but could not compete with Chelsea for the player’s wages and bonuses.
This deal is set to finally end the transfer saga surrounding Luka Modric, as both players play a similar role, and I very much doubt now that we will be bringing in Luka as well as Oscar.
So have Chelsea finally found their man? Have they now found their creative genius they are seeking to operate in an advanced midfield position, pulling the strings and making things happen?
Personally I am excited by this signing and believe with the right coaching and breeding in to the club, he can become a big name at the Bridge in time.
