Chelsea: Oscar deal update; Spaniard could follow; £10 million move prepared

Playmaker Oscar is moving increasingly closer to a move to China for a reported £52 million fee, with Andre Villas Boas set to be reunited with the Brazilian he worked with in London at Stamford Bridge. Oscar told Brazilian outlet Sportv:

“It just depends on a few bureaucratic details… It’s 90% done.”

The deal looks a positive one for the Blues given the huge transfer fee involved for a player who has played a bit part role in recent weeks.

Cesc Fabregas could be the next to follow him from Chelsea to China as reports emerge that the Spaniard will soon be subject to a £40 million bid from Guangzhou Evergrande, managed by former Blues boss Luis Felipe Scolari, who were also keen on Oscar, say the Daily Mail.

Speculation has long suggested that the former Barcelona man may move on sooner rather than later, with a January move or summer exit likely, but he has impressed when called upon by Antonio Conte with two assists and a goal in his last three appearances. Fabregas may also turn down the offer if he believes that he can still play at a higher level, which he can based on his recent displays.

With two midfielders said to be nearing an exit, Chelsea are preparing a £10 million move for Fiorentina midfielder Milan Badelj according to the Serie A club’s local newspaper in Florenca, La Nazione. The Croatian is similar in style to Nemanja Matic in that he prefers a deeper playmaker role and could join forces with N’Golo Kante in midfield.

However, there is also interest in the 27-year-old from AC Milan and their city rivals Inter after he has scored once and set up two goals in 14 Serie A games to date this campaign, having moved to Italy from Wolfsburg just over two years ago.
