Agent: Juventus rejected Chelsea star Oscar!

South American agent Sabatino Durante admits Chelsea's hero last night, Oscar, could easily have been playing for Juventus.

The 21 year-old struck twice in his Champions League debut.

And Durante told TMW: "It was in 2010 and Oscar, Lucas and Bruno Uvini were connected to Sao Paulo through irregular contracts. At 16 years of age, Sao Paulo wanted the three players to sign a contract for five years. Fifa, however, insisted for such young players contracts of up to three years.

"Between October and December 2010, I proposed to 70% of Italian managers, but everyone stalled."
