Chelsea’s move for Brazil midfielder Oscar is moving closer with the deal possibly completed as early as Friday, The Daily Mail has reported, as the Internacional player describes the prospect of playing for the Premier League side as “a dream”.
Oscar has said: “If I go to Chelsea, it will be a dream – a big club in Europe,” Oscar said, adding: “I’m sure I’ll have a great Olympics, and if it is to be Chelsea, I’ll do a great job there.”
Oscar has played for Internacional since 2009, moving to Porto Alegre from Sao Paulo. The reported fee for his move to Champions League winners Chelsea is in the region of £25m.
Oscar is said to have undergone a medical for the move before Brazil’s 2-0 win over Team GB in a London Olympics warm-up last week.
