Oscar confirms rebuffed PSG contact, 'will stay at Chelsea' for next season

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

As if there was ever any doubt.

Well, either that, or PSG simply didn't have £300m to spend (or whatever percentage of that was Oscar and not Eden Hazard) after whisking love of my life David Luiz away.

"I had contacts with PSG, it's true but it did not go further."

"The next season, I will stay at Chelsea."

So yeah, nice try, Paris Saint-Germain.  We'll keep our highly promising 22-year-olds, thank you very much.

Apparently there had been some suggestions in the media that Chelsea may be swayed into selling Oscar now that Cesc Fabregas is here, but these quotes should put an end to that ridiculous notion as well.  (Ridiculous not because Fabregas and Oscar may end up competing for playing time, but ridiculous because we know that Oscar's more than good enough to get plenty of playing time even with the experienced, ready-to-contribute straight away Spaniard around.)

So, not that there was ever any doubt, really, but here's to Oscar at Stamford Bridge for next season and for many more beyond that.  But how about taking a vacation after leading Brazil to the World Cup title, yes?  Please?
