European soccer champion Chelsea said it signed Brazil midfielder Oscar from Internacional.
Oscar, 20, whose full name is Oscar dos Santos Emboaba Junior, is in the Brazil squad for the 2012 London Olympics and played in the 2-0 defeat of Great Britain last week.
Chelsea didn’t reveal financial details although the Daily Telegraph said yesterday the transfer fee is as much as 25 million pounds ($38.7 million).
Oscar joins Eden Hazard and Marko Marin among new arrivals at Stamford Bridge for next season. In Brazil he played for Sao Paulo and Porto Alegre-based Internacional.
