Internacional admit Chelsea contact about Oscar

On Friday evening, Internacional president, Giovanni Luigi, admitted that Chelsea had been in touch with them regarding a possible bid for Oscar. “We received an email about this subject, but it’s a long way off being done. We think Oscar is worth more than €20 million. But it wasn’t an offer; they were just sounding us out about numbers. We are just saying that the numbers have to change” Luigi told Rádio Gaúcha.
This is a long way off what the Daily Mail were reporting earlier this week when they announced a deal had been done for around £25 million.
Oscar is currently on duty with Brazil’s Olympic squad. Chelsea fans will get to see him in action when the South Americans take on Great Britain in a friendly later this month.
