Chelsea fans are not quite sure what to make of the next rumour to appear in the Football Transfer Tavern, courtesy of Charles Perrin at The Express.
A FIFA agent has suggested the Blues would be open to a sensational swap deal that would see them swap Brazilian playmaker Oscar for Real Madrid’s Luka Modric.
Oscar has been one of the standout players for Jose Mourinho this season, scoring eight league goals so far.
His performances have not gone unnoticed by top European clubs, with Paris Saint-Germain and now Real Madrid believed to be interested.
And according to FIFA agent Francis Gallardo, a swap deal involving former Tottenham star Modric could be on the cards.
“This could be a possibility,” Gallardo told Spanish TV station La Sexta.
“Mourinho is a fan of the strong Real Madrid star. He knows Modric will be expensive and would be happy to exchange a pretty good player Chelsea.
“The player Mourinho wants at Chelsea is Modric and he is willing to include Oscar plus cash in the transcation.”
