Oscar appears to have inadvertently confirmed Chelsea’s summer signing of Brazilian teenager Kenedy via a post on social media.

The west London club have been heavily linked with a move for the youngster in recent weeks as Jose Mourinho bolsters his squad ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League title defence.

Chelsea are yet to formally announce a deal to sign the 19-year-old, who is thought to be close to agreeing a five-year contract with the Blues.

However, his compatriot Oscar looks to have all but confirmed that Kenedy is set to join the Blues via a post on Instagram.

Oscar shared the picture above of himself with Ramires, Diego Costa and Keney on the photo-sharing app on Thursday and wrote: “Welcome @keenedy_ this new stage of your life.”

Chelsea are currently in Canada ahead of their pre-season tour to North America as Mourinho’s men get into shape ahead of their title defence.
