Chelsea Confirm Oscar Capture

With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Oscar.
Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Brazil international midfielder Oscar on the clubs official website.
The Internacional ace has been strongly linked with a move to the Blues in recent weeks and the club have now finally announced the 20-year-old is moving to Stamford Bridge this summer.
Having began his career at Sao Paulo, Oscar soon moved to Internacional where he grew into one of the most highly-rated prospects in South America.
After representing Brazil at even youth level, Oscar is now a full international and is with the squad preparing for the forthcoming London 2012 Olympic Games. Perhaps his most notable moment in a Brazil shirt came when he hit a hat-trick in the final of the Under-20 World Cup to secure a 3-2 win over Portugal.
The fee Chelsea have paid has not been disclosed, but it’s expected to take owner Roman Abramovich’s spending over £100m after the signings of Eden Hazard, Marko Marin and Kevin De Bruyne.
