Chelsea SMASH Spurs with £25M Oscar deal

Chelsea have beaten Tottenham for Internacional midfielder Oscar. The Daily Mail says Chelsea have pulled off another transfer coup by clinching the signature of £25million Brazilian wonderkid Oscar.

To add further flavour to the European champions' deal, they have pipped their former manager Andre Villas-Boas in the process.

Tottenham's new boss thought he was in a strong position to land 20-year-old Oscar after making an offer last week.

It was reported the bid was £11m, but sources in South America say it was much higher than that and a club-record offer of nearer £18m.

Chelsea, however, have moved quickly to swamp Tottenham's offer and beat their former charge to his signature.
