“I have enjoyed playing here for two years and now I have five more, so I am very happy“, Oscar was quoted as saying by the BBC. “I am so happy because I love playing for Chelsea and living in England”, the Brazilian international added.

The attacking midfielder has also earned 40 international caps for the five time world champions and has 11 goals to his name. He was also a part of the squad that finished fourth in the World Cup at home this summer.
