Brazilian side Internacional claim they have not received any bids for reported Chelsea and Tottenham target Oscar, according to Sky Sports News.

The Daily Mail reported this morning that Chelsea had pipped Tottenham to the signing of the Brazilian plamaker by agreeing a £25m deal with Internacional.

Sky Sports News also reported that the players agent, Carlos Meinberg Neto, had previous claimed the European champions had tabled a €25million (£19.8m) bid for the 20-year-old and a deal was close to completion.

However, Internacional president, Giovanni Luigi, has stepped in to deny these claims insisting they are yet to receive any firm offers for either Oscar or striker Leandro Damiao, who has also been linked with a move to Spurs.

Luigi does admit that the club may be forced to sell their prized assets this summer should a suitable offer come in, but again reiterated that no bid had been made for any of their players as yet.

“There have been no offers for Oscar and Leandro Damiao,”

“Internacional have the practice of selling one or two players every transfer window.

“This system has been working and we will keep it, developing players, then finding replacements if they are sold while the window is open.

“So we might sell a player, but right now no offer has been made for any player in the squad.”

Luigi is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News

Football Talk Verdict

So it appears contrary to what the Daily Mail reported today, Chelsea have in fact NOT agreed a deal to sign Oscar….yet.

The player seems destined to leave Brazil this summer and a move to London is likely. What’s not clear however, is what part of London he’ll end up in. Chelsea remain favourites but don’t discount Spurs, who have new ambitions under Andre Villas-Boas.

    I for one think that we should sign oscar. We also need hulk but if not jovetic is another fantastic player. I prefer debuchy over maicon any day or time. period!

    Whatever, we still this guy!!! Also for Hulk due to his high demands let’s opt for Falcao, Jovetic, or Schurrle.

    So many media links going around with this story but there’s nothing concrete from Chelsea or Spurs. In fact the only 100% accurate info is Internacional president statement that no official bids have been made by anyone. Additionally as any Spurs fan knows we have first refusal on their players because of our partnership with Inter so if they’re asking for £19.8m (€25m) that’s within Levys budget. He won’t pass that up also knowing it will help to bring Leandro Damio to WHL and ofc put one over the Chavs.
