Chelsea star Oscar signs five-year deal

Oscar has signed a new contract, keeping him at Chelsea until 2019.

The 23-year-old Brazilian playmaker joined the Blues in the summer of 2012 and has made a total of 126 appearances, scoring 27 goals.

Oscar has scored four goals in Chelsea’s unbeaten start to this season and has featured in all but two of their 17 games in all competitions.

He said: “I am so happy because I love playing for Chelsea and living in England.

“I have enjoyed playing here for two years, and now I have five more, so I am very happy.”

Oscar was not a first choice during the early part of the season, but has forced his way back into the side after scoring the winner during an impressive display in the 2-1 League Cup win over Bolton.

He also scored a superb free-kick in the victory over Crystal Palace and has earned praise from manager Jose Mourinho for his work-rate as well as his ability.
