Fresh rumours have surfaced about the future of Oscar, who is looking increasingly likely to leave Chelsea depending upon the tabloid papers. Oscar was labelled as the untouchable number 10 by Jose Mourinho at the start of the season. His presence even persuaded the club to sell Juan Mata, who had been the best player for the club in the last two seasons, to Manchester United for £ 37.1 million. However, poor performances in the second half of the season appears to have changed the mind of Mourinho.
There have been rumours in recent weeks that Oscar could be joining the likes of PSG and Real Madrid. Now, the FIFA agent has said that talks have been ongoing between Chelsea and Real Madrid over a potential deal involving Oscar and Luka Modric. Mourinho showed a lot of interest in bringing Luka Modric to the Santiago Bernabeu. The deal was estimated to be £ 35 million. Even though the midfielder was widely rated as the worst signing last season, he was regularly used by Mourinho.
Now, the manager appears to be intent on being reunited with his former player. Francis Gallardo says that a potential swap deal could be possible if all parties are ready with that.
“This could be a possibility. Mourinho is a fan of the strong Real Madrid star. He knows Modric will be expensive and would be happy to exchange a pretty good player Chelsea. The player Mourinho wants at Chelsea is Modric and he is willing to include Oscar plus cash in the transaction,” said agent Francis Gallardo while speaking at a Spanish radio station. At just 21 years of age, Oscar is just beginning to start his career in European football. Modric, meanwhile, is an established international player with a lot of experience in European leagues.
