Chelsea have become a massive club in the transfer rumor mill and look to be going nowhere anytime soon.
Their run of success in the modern millennium has been one of the best in the game, and the club have been a massive force since the financial backing of Roman Abramovich took charge.
With plenty of money to throw around whenever he feels the need, the deep coffers of the club's Russian billionaire owner keep them in prime position for many of the world's top targets.
As the summer window kicks into high gear, we take a look at the buzz surrounding the possible outcomes of the latest club gossip from the daily papers.
Oscar to Chelsea
The papers this morning of July 10th, 2012 have exploded with news that Chelsea are set to land Brazilian and Internacional starlet Oscar for a fee of £22 million to £25 million, depending on the source of the Telegraph, the Daily Mirror or the Guardian.
This rumor appears legitimate, but there is plenty of time for Tottenham to come back into the race.

However, the Daily Mail is claiming that the massive transfer fee of £35 million could be more than Real want to pay for the Croatian. That once more leaves the door open for Chelsea.
While their past interest suggests that it could happen, I would say it is a 50/50 chance of coming true.
