Why is £19.35m Chelsea star congratulating his former club?

Oscar Chelsea

Oscar has been giving his best wishes to former club Internacional Porto Alegre.

Yesterday saw Chelsea unveil their new kits for the upcoming season - and the tagline #ForeverBlue was all over the web.

Instagram, Twitter, Facebook - you name it, the video unveiling of the new home kit and home goalkeeper strip was everywhere and a few select players were given the opportunity to be the models for the new strip.

One such player was Oscar.

The Brazilian, who has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain this week, helped with the marketing by posting a pic of himself in the new kit and adding in that tagline - #ForeverBlue.

But it would seem he will always be a little red as well.

The 4th of April 2014 represented the 105th birthday of Brazilian club Internacional Porto Alegre - the team Oscar arrived at Chelsea from.

Oscar played at the club for two years after a fall out at his previous club Sao Paolo - and made his international debut for Brazil whilst at the club.

Chelsea paid £19.35 million for the player - but money has not stripped his memories and loyalty to his old club.

He posted this on his official Instagram page last night…

Congratulations @scinternacionaloficial 105 years...
