Real Madrid could make an offer for Oscar after reports that Chelsea could sell the player, FootballDirectNews.com understands.
The Brazilian playmaker is also being targeted by Paris Saint-Germain as it is thought that Jose Mourinho is willing to offload a number of first-team regulars at Stamford Bridge in order to raise funds to sign a top class centre-forward.
The Blues have plenty of options in the attacking midfield positions, with the likes of Eden Hazard, Andre Schurrle and Willian, whereas they are short of quality upfront with Fernando Torres and Demba Ba failing to perform this season, and Samuel Eto’o only at the club on a one-year deal.
Madrid, meanwhile, are on the lookout for new signings in that position as manager Carlo Ancelotti admits that selling Mesut Ozil to Arsenal in the summer may have been a mistake. Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho has also been linked with a move to the Bernabeu. With 11 goals and six assists this season, Oscar could be a fine addition for the Spanish giants, and a move to one of Europe’s biggest clubs would no doubt be appealing for the 22-year-old.
