Moura@Man Utd vs Oscar@Chelsea: Who wins?
One is done deal, one in the balance… both are lethal
The upcoming Premier League season will feature two of the hottest Brazilian talents to emerge simultaneously since well, Ronaldinho and Kaka.
If all goes according to plan, one will play for Manchester United and the other is already at Chelsea.
The question is, who has the real talent and who has the ‘sad story of him not being able to adjust to the demands of the EPL’.
Oscar is the Chelsea signing.
He says he will be happy to play wherever manager Roberto Di Matteo wants him to at Stamford Bridge.
The Brazilian is currently in the UK with the Olympic squad.
The former Sao Paulo playmaker likes an attacking midfield role.
He said: “After the Olympics I am going to talk to the manager and I am ready to do whatever the manager wants me to do.
“This is a dream for me,” he said. “I'm joining Chelsea hopefully to win more titles.”
Moura at Man United
Sao Paulo president Juvenal Juvencio has insisted he has no intention of selling Brazil star Lucas Moura.
Sir Alex Ferguson has insisted that Manchester United are going to get Moura and the clubs are working towards a deal.
At £26 million deal being reported, it is not a done deal yet.
Ferguson, who has already added midfielders Shinji Kagawa and Nick Powell to his squad this summer, admitted Lucas is among his remaining targets during the Red Devils' pre-season trip to China.
He told a press conference: "We have shown an interest, but until such time we get a deal agreed, we can't say he's our player."
Well if Fergie needed any prodding to nail Moura he has only to look at the prospect of Oscar joining the likes of Eden Hazard at Chelsea.
