Although there is yet no official confirmation from Chelsea in regards to the signing of young Brazilian Robert Kenedy, Chelsea midfielder Oscar has mistakenly ( or is it intentionally ) revealed the signing of the Manchester United.
According to a report by Goal.com, Oscar shared a picture on his instagram page as the the blues were about to leave for pre-season in North America. In the picture, Oscar was seen in the company of his team mates such as Diego Costa, Ramires and curiously Kenedy – all were wearing Chelsea’s full blue training gear.
Oscar went to add to the picture “welcome @keenedy_ this new stage of your life!”.
Which is a further indication of the fact that the player has signed for the blues and the only thing left is an official confirmation from the club. Kenedy was linked with Manchester United with reports claiming the red devils where hopeful of completing a deal for the player worth 6 million.
However, it is unclear as to why Chelsea are yet to make the move official especially as the player now trains with the squad and he is even undergoing pre-season with them. Could he be on trial? And if he is not on trial and the deal is permanent, will Chelsea manager to get a work permit for him to enable him player with the team next season?
Only time we will tell.
