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.

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.
