Chelsea and Barcelona are set to lock horns in the race to sign Real Madrid youngster Oscar Rodriguez, according to Don Balon.

In recent seasons, Chelsea have made a habit of stockpiling some of the best talent in the world and developing them out on loan. Said players would then return from their loans with an increased market value and subsequently be sold on for profit.

Some may brand it unethical, but it has proven to be an astute business strategy. Marina Granovskaia deserves immense credit for the role she has played in decreasing the club’s net spend. Our scouting network, including the recently departed Michael Emenalo, should also be praised for their keen eye for talent.

It doesn’t look as though Chelsea’s money-making machine is going out of business anytime soon. Don Balon believe that the Premier League champions are looking to poach Oscar Rodriguez from Real Madrid.

Don Balon believe that, despite the fact he has never made a La Liga appearance, Oscar Rodriguez is wanted by both Chelsea and Barcelona, with the former willing to pay as much as £7M to secure his services. This is one to keep an eye on.
