Internacional reveal Oscar offer

BY foxsports • July 14, 2012

Internacional president Giovanni Luigi has revealed the club have received an enquiry over Oscar amid speculation linking him with Chelsea.

The Blues are thought to be edging Premier League rivals Tottenham in the race for the Brazil playmaker's signature, with his agent claiming earlier this week the European champions had tabled a 25million euros (£19.8million) bid for the 20-year-old.

However, Luigi has cooled such speculation.

The club president maintains they are yet to receive any concrete bids but has revealed an enquiry has been made over the availability of Oscar for 20million euros (£15.7million).

Luigi was unimpressed by the proposal, telling Radio Gaucha: "We received an email today, but it's a long way off being done.

"The proposal wasn't as good as expected. We think Oscar is worth more than 20million euros.

"It wasn't an offer; it was more like an enquiry. We are only saying that the numbers have to change."

Oscar, capped six times for his country, is regarded as one of the best young talents in Brazil and he has been named in their Olympics squad.

The playmaker has impressed since joining Internacional from Sao Paolo two years ago.
