Chelsea interested in swapping Oscar for Real Madrid's Luka Modric
Jose Mourinho is looking to make key purchases this summer, particularly for his squad's attacking line, but funds to back such a move might be insufficient as Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is suggested to be in a more prudent state when it comes to making big-money transfers.
As a consequence, the Portuguese manager will have to offload some of his prized assets in order to effectively accomplish his proposed team overhaul.
The Croatia international Modric has thrived under the guidance of the "Special One" in Spain's capital in his debut season, playing numerous positions from being a pivot to supporting strikers as an attacking midfielder, as opposed to the one-dimensional Brazilian, Oscar, who, is so far, deployed only upfront.
