Chelsea to sell Oscar to Barcelona?Chelsea to sell Oscar to Barcelona?
Barcelona are ready to revamp their squad ahead of next season, should they fail to overturn the four point deficit that now separates them and chief rivals Real Madrid in at the top of the La Liga table in Spain. According to reports on ibtimes.com, a new-look Catalan side would be spearheaded by Chelsea and Brazil midfielder Oscar.
The American website insists that patience is lost on the careers of 'old heads' Xavi Herandez and Andres Iniesta, despite the latter still being 29 years old, and that Oscar is the man they want to rebuild around.
The same source believes that similar moves may materialise for Stamford bridge duo David Luiz and Ramires, with Barca said to be keen to purchase the entire triumvirate. A counter move by French side PSG for Oscar, worth £41.5 million, is also cited but the extent to which these moves may occur is thought to be little at the moment.
One thing is for sure, should Barcelona or any other club buy these three Brazilians, then Chelsea would have an awful lot of money to spend as a result.
