Oscar confirms Chelsea medical

ESPN staff

Brazil midfielder Oscar has undertaken a medical with Chelsea whilst in England, but insists he has not yet signed a contract with the Champions League winners.

Oscar, 20, played in Brazil's 2-0 victory over Great Britain in Middlesbrough on Friday evening as the teams warm-up for the London 2012 Games.

The Internacional playmaker has been linked with a 25 million move to Stamford Bridge, but is adamant he will decide his future after his national team duties have been completed.

"I only had a meeting with the doctor, nothing else," Oscar said. "I didn't sign any contract yet and I will wait until the end of the Olympic games to decide my future.

"All Brazilian players have this dream. I have, like everybody the dream to play in Europe and the Premier League."

Oscar joined Internacional from Sao Paulo in 2009 and last summer scored a hat-trick in the Under-20 World Cup final as Brazil beat Portugal.

He told Brazilian reporters he had decided to stay with Internacional earlier in the week, but now seems open to a Chelsea switch.

"It is like a dream for me, participating in the Olympics, it's so important for my career and I hope to win the gold medal here," he said.

"It was a good result tonight [against Team GB] but we also have to improve and grow during the competition to reach the final. I am enjoying, it is not a pressure, I am focussed on the Olympics but want to show the British fans that I can play well here."
