Chelsea’s £40m Star Confirms PSG Interest

Oscar wants to stay in West London though.

Chelsea attacking midfielder Oscar has claimed that French giants Paris Saint-Germain had approached him earlier in the summer, but that talks did not reach a fruitful conclusion.

Jose Mourinho felt that the Brazilian was not physically ready for the rigours of the Premier League last season, which led to the talented youngster being linked with a £40 million switch to Paris.

Oscar, who netted 11 goals last season for the Blues, scored just one in the final 15 games last term, but wants to stay on at Stamford Bridge to prove his detractors wrong.

“My future? I had contacts with PSG, that is true, but it did not go any further,” the 22-year-old was quoted by the Daily Express.

“And next season, I will stay at Chelsea.”

Oscar was bought by the Blues in 2012 for about £20 million, and it is rather ironic that the youngster’s mentor Mourinho, who wanted him as a central figure in his side, now might be open to selling the Brazil international.

Oscar is currently starring for the hosts at the 2014 World Cup and has 10 goals in 34 games for the Samba Boys to date.
