Chelsea receive £60m offer for Oscar

Oscar heading for Blues exit?

Premier League leaders Chelsea are apparently considering the sale of midfielder Oscar having received a £60m offer from Chinese Super League club Shanghai SIPG.

SIPG are said to have stepped their pursuit for the player following a request from manager Andre Villas-Boas, who had previously coached the Blues.

Oscar, 25, has not started a league game for the Blues since the start of October, and according to various sources, the West London giants are more likely to sell the midfielder in the New Year.

The Brazil international had previously snubbed a move to China with Guangzhou Evergrande in January 2016, but he may have changed his mind this time around following his struggles at Stamford Bridge.

Villas-Boas was hot on the trail of the player's services while at Tottenham Hotspur (2012) before Chelsea outbid their local rivals to the player.
