Transfer news: Chelsea’s Oscar has revealed his attempts to persuade Brazil teammate Neymar to join him in west London
Chelsea’s new £25million recruit Oscar has revealed he is trying to persuade Brazil teammate Neymar to join him at Stamford Bridge.
Oscar, 20, and fellow wonderkid Neymar are currently chasing Olympic gold with the Brazil squad at London 2012.
While Oscar has voiced his delight at signing for Chelsea, Santos striker Neymar is being linked with a move to one of Europe’s top clubs.
“While we are in London, I have been telling Neymar about the ambition of Chelsea. When the time comes for him to join a European club, I hope I can persuade him,” Oscar told The People.
Former Internacional playmaker Oscar has been one of the stars of the Olympics, and says it was Chelsea’s ambition that attracted him to Stamford Bridge.
“They are the champions of Europe, but they are still showing so much ambition by improving the squad,” he said.
“To win the European Cup and still sign guys like myself and Eden Hazard shows you the ambition the owner and manager have.
“With the squad we have I will be looking at winning the Premier League title and also the Champions League.”
