Oscar's Chelsea switch on hold

Brazil midfielder Oscar has said that he will make up his mind about whether to sign for Premier League giants Chelsea after the Olympics.

The 20-year-old Internacional playmaker has been the subject of intense speculation linking him with a move to Stamford Bridge all summer.

Oscar confirmed he had already passed a medical after starring in Brazil's 2-0 friendly win over Great Britain in Middlesbrough on Friday night, but was keen to point out that he has not signed a contract with Roberto Di Matteo's side.

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

"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 insisted though that Olympics remain his primary focus for now.

"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 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."
