It’s no secret that Oscar has been used as transfer bait for some big Chelsea targets. Will the Blues sell their midfield star?
Chelsea may find their hand forced as Juventus line up a massive offer for an Oscar transfer.
According to Squawka, Juventus manager Max Allegri is determined to make the 23-year-old superstar part of his roster and is willing to shell out an astounding €60 million bid to secure his services. Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has been easing Oscar out of the attacking midfielder position due to the ascension of Eden Hazard, along with strong play from Cesc Fabregas and Willian.
Oscar has made 94 league appearances and 151 total appearances for Chelsea since moving to Stamford Bridge from Internacional in 2012 for an estimated £25 million. In his first two seasons with Chelsea, Oscar recorded double-digit total goals, but he didn’t play the entire season in 2014-15, so his numbers were slightly smaller than some of his previous years.
The 23-year-old Brazilian was unable to represent his country in the recent 2015 Copa America due to an injury.
