Oscar dos Santos Emboaba Junior (born 9 September 1991) is a Brazilian international footballer who signed for Chelsea F.C. in 2012.
On 16 July 2012, Chelsea agreed a fee of around £20,000,000 for the young Brazilian. Less than 2 weeks later, chelseafc.com confirmed the signing. Oscar was handed the no 11 jersey, previously worn by Didier Drogba.
He made his debut on the opening day of the 2012-13 Premier League season, coming on as a second-half substitute despite having trained just twice with his team-mates, and displayed a previously lesser known turn of pace to add to his sharp passing game. Oscar made his first start for the club in the Champions League draw against Juventus at Stamford Bridge, announcing his arrival in style with two strikes in the space of a couple of minutes, the second of which will live long in the memory, and since then he became a regular starter in Roberto Di Matteo's side. His fondness for goals of the spectacular variety continued on 7 November 2012 in a home game against Shakhtar Donetsk, in which he produced a stunning effort to score from 35 yards.
A 5ft 10in (1.79m) attacking midfielder who can also play wide, he has a reputation for good pass-and-move football, protecting the ball and choosing the right moment to play passes.
