Oscar: It's a dream to be at Chelsea
Oscar is delighted to have finally met up with his new Chelsea team-mates, admitting that it is a ''dream'' to join the club.
The 20-year-old completed his first Blues training session on Friday after helping Brazil win silver at the Olympic Games earlier this summer.
Oscar arrived at Stamford Bridge last month from Internacional for a fee believed to be in the region of £25 million.
''I'm very happy to be here,'' the playmaker told Chelsea's official website. ''It's a dream to be at a club like this, a club that is renowned around the world. I've never seen a club with such facilities, facilities so perfect to allow you to play at your best.''
Oscar will wear former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba's number 11 shirt for the 2012-13 campaign, and the youngster is eager to fill the Ivory Coast international's boots.
He said: ''I understand the importance of this number to Chelsea. In Brazil it is the number 10, but here the 11 is a very important number and I just hope that I can do it justice.''
Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has already hinted that Oscar will make his debut this Sunday when the Champions League holders take on Wigan at the DW Stadium.
''I am really happy that the manager is already thinking of me and putting me in his plans,'' the former São Paulo player added. ''I feel I could do well if I am called upon on Sunday because I have been playing regular games and am in good rhythm. I am ready to go.''
