Oscar's imminent arrival at Chelsea is already exciting Blues fans but TEAMtalk blogger Rich Kitto is more cautious over the young Brazilian.
'Never assume. It makes an ass out of you and me' - David Brent, Wernham Hogg.
As thoughts of the Euros dissipate and attention turns towards the World Cup in Brazil in 2014 for the England national team, it seems a handful of domestic clubs have occupied a similar strategy as they consider some of up-and-coming players from the samba nation.
But can it be assumed that just because they are a nation known for producing some of the most awe-inspiring footballers to ever grace the hallowed turf, that the new kids on the block will be just as good?
For me, the jury is certainly still out when looking back at those that have made the transition from Sao Paulo to Salford.
For those of us that don't afford the opportunity to keep up with the latest from the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, the Olympics provides a great opportunity to scope out the three men that have been dominating the transfer columns in recent days - Oscar, Lucas Moura and Hulk.
Whilst Manchester United have apparently bulked at the £30million price tag put on Lucas, and the destiny of Hulk remains "in the hands of God", it seems extremely likely that Oscar will join the growing list of attacking midfielders to currently ply their trade at Chelsea.
Of the three men, most is known of Hulk, whose outlandish nickname and goals for Porto have put him on the radar of most of the biggest teams in Europe - whilst little is known of the 20-year-old with the similarly short name.
Oscar shot to prominence in the Under-20 World Cup in 2011, where he became the first player in the tournament's history to score a hat-trick in the final. Since moving to Internacional from Sao Paulo, he has scored a reasonable 19 goals in 70 appearances whilst also getting off the mark for the full national team.
Like so many that have come before him, he has gained natural resemblance to a past hero, in this case Kaka. He is predominantly an attack-minded right-footed playmaker that can play in behind the striker or off the shoulder; a position he excelled in against Team GB in the recent friendly at Middlesbrough.
But you can't help but question whether Roberto Di Matteo, in the short time he has been in charge, will have been able to have seen enough of the youngster to put such value (thought to be around £25million) on his head. This leads to the suggestion that the move, much like the ones made for Andiry Shevchenko and Fernando Torres, may be another purchase from the Roman emperor to entertain him at Stamford Bridge.
There's no doubt that it's currently an extremely exciting time for Blues supporters as their owner looks to reassert his team amongst the might of Manchester with some exhilarating signings. But there can be no assumptions made that Oscar will be successful simply because he comes with a reputation and wears the national colours of yellow and green.
In fact, of all the Brazilians that have graced the Premier League, only a handful have played the samba-style we naturally associate with the nation, and even fewer could truly be called a success.
Undoubtedly, the one player that Blues supporters will be hoping Oscar emulates is Juninho. The signing of the then 22-year-old for £4.5million from Sao Paulo will go down as one of the best bits of transfer business in Premier League history as the little magician guided Boro to two domestic finals and League Cup glory.
The fact that he is still the Brazilian crowning glory 12 years on from his initial signing speaks both volumes for his immense talent and points towards under-achievement from the rest of the crop.
Whilst players such as Gilberto Silva, Lucas Leiva, Edu, Alex and Ramires all deserve credit for what they have achieved on these shores, they are all tough, compact and combatant midfielders - all aptitudes which will naturally bear fruit in the hustle and bustle of English football.
Whereas Robinho, who could be compared to Oscar in his style of play and stature, but hopefully not his attitude, initially showed promise after his £32.5million move from Madrid to Manchester, he failed to live up to expectations and was moved on to AC Milan for a heavy loss in 2010. And of course the less said of Afonso Alves, the better.
A £25million fee is certainly a gamble on a player not used to the climate and conditions of the Premier League, and you can guarantee that players from the likes of Stoke will give Oscar a hearty introduction to life in England when given the opportunity.
However, the thought of Eden Hazard down one side, Oscar down the other, and Hulk through the middle, is sure to turn rival managers and fans green with envy.
It would be brilliant for spectators and the English game if Chelsea have unlocked a real gem in the precociously talented Oscar. The hope must be that one day, we look back on him and draw obvious comparisons to one particular Brazilian export at Boro - as opposed to one of the others.
