Oscar: PSG "know that I'm good at Chelsea"

Julian Finney

I'm not sure why Chelsea fans are worried about big bad Paris Saint-Germain coming in for our best players, but hey, I can get behind rampant pessimism as well, even if it does require ignoring the whole worse-team-worse-league-FFP-doomed aspect of the Parisian's grand plan. But anyway, we should probably address it when our players are actually talking about it. And in this case, Oscar is:

I'm flattered PSG are thinking about me, but I'm happy at Chelsea. Paris are a big club, but I'm happy here. Lucas, Thiago Silva and I spoke about it a little bit when we met in the Champions League, but there is nothing certain. They know that I'm good at Chelsea.

-Source: ESPN.

Naturally the headline is going to be 'Oscar spoke about PSG move', but that's a gross distortion of his quote, which implies something more like 'Lucas Moura asked me about moving to PSG, I said I was happy where I was'.

We might have had a bad weekend, but at least we have a core of great young players and the financial muscle to keep them around for a while. Don't stress too much about the likes of Oscar and Eden Hazard getting poached.
