Stamford Bridge attacker on Bernabeu radar.
Real Madrid are lining up a summer move for Chelsea star Oscar according to Football Direct News.
Bernabeu boss Carlo Ancelotti believes he can lure the 22 year old into moving to the Spanish capital and sees the playmaker as a replacement for Mesut Ozil, a player the Italian has admitted he shouldn’t have sold to Arsenal last summer.
Oscar has been in fine form since moving to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2012 and is a player Jose Mourinho isn’t likely to consider offers for, not least as his displays before January led to the Chelsea manager’s decision to cash-in on Juan Mata.
The flair player has however been a little out of sorts of late, scoring just two goals and providing just one assist in his last 15 appearances.
Chelsea’s creative midfielders have had to bear more than their fair share of the goal-scoring load this term due to the inability of their strike-force to find the back of the net and it’s possible that Oscar is exhausted having already made 46 appearances this term, having played 63 times last term.
Oscar is sure to be a key member of Brazil’s World Cup squad and indeed his valuation may well increase further with the player now well worth at least double the £19m Chelsea paid Internacional for his services back in July 2012.
