Neymar: Oscar wants me to join Chelsea

Santos star Neymar has revealed that Brazil team-mate Oscar has urged him to join Chelsea, while Dani Alves has been trying to convince him to move to Barcelona - describing both of them as "very good salesmen".

Neymar's future has been the subject of regular speculation over the past 18 months, with Barca and Real Madrid widely regarded to be favourites to sign him when he eventually decides to leave Brazil.

However, it now appears Chelsea could also be in the running as Oscar - who played alongside Neymar in Brazil's Olympic campaign in the UK during the summer - has been talking up the merits of life at Stamford Bridge.

Oscar is not alone in trying to lure the 20-year-old forward to his club, though; Barcelona's Dani Alves has been telling Neymar to pick the Catalans if he is moving to Europe.

"Oscar messages me to tell me what a great club Chelsea is and what a great city London is," Neymar was quoted as saying in The Sun. "He and Dani are both very good salesmen for their club.

"When the time is right I will listen to to the right offers that my agent has for me. It is very simple: if Barcelona are interested you listen, if Real Madrid are interested you listen, if Chelsea are interested you listen

"There are maybe five clubs in the world that you know you must at least listen to."
