Chelsea star Oscar has committed his long-term future to the West London club.
The Brazilian was a subject of the £58m bid from Chinese side Jiangsu Suning earlier this month, but he has insisted that he intends to stay at Chelsea despite the huge amount of money on offer.
The 24-year old has confirmed that the interest in his services existed, but he never considered it.
Oscar’s compatriot Ramires moved to China last month, but he has no intentions of following in his footsteps at the current stage in his career.
“Of course, I was sad to see [Ramires] go in the sense that we’re from the same country, we’re friends, we speak the same language and help each other out. It’s a good move for him,” Oscar told The Sun.
“There was interest in me, but I’ve no desire to leave Europe. The idea of moving to China would be such a huge change for me and would go against everything I’ve achieved so far.
“Chelsea are a fantastic, very big club, and I’m still young. I’m only 24, so I’ve got a lot of football ahead of me.”
Oscar was a subject of many speculations during February and it’s a very good news for Chelsea fans that he finally touched his plans to stay in the West London club.
