Chelsea could've snapped up £25 million signing Oscar for a fraction of his price 12 months ago. The Daily Star Sunday says Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich could have signed the Internacional starlet a year ago - for £20m LESS.

And that, of course, applies to other Premier League clubs, like Tottenham, who were eyeing Brazil's Olympic Games playmaker.

A Brazil source revealed: "Oscar could have been signed last summer for five million or at the most six million pounds.

"Internacional knew they wouldn't be able to keep him and would have done a deal at those figures.

"Premier League clubs were aware of that but perhaps then they were unsure about him.

"What has happened since is that he has developed as a player, established himself in the Brazil squad and interest has grown.

"That has resulted in after the Games.

But the huge increase in his valuation."
