Oscar who signed for Chelsea FC from Club Internacional for £19m in 2012 said he is very open to a sensational return to Chelsea.
Oscar started his professional Career in Sao Paulo FC playing for the club for two years, scoring no goals in 11 Appearances, before moving to Internacional in 2010 where he scored 11 goals in 36 appearances.
Chelsea came knocking in 2012, and he enjoyed an exciting trophy ladened career. Winning two premier league titles and one Europa League title. He had a record 131 Career apps, scoring 21 goals in all competition spanning four years.
Oscar decided to leave the club in 2016 when he felt his position was threatened by the new formation “3-4-3” Chelsea had adopted under Antonio Conte.
Throughout his Chelsea Career, Oscar faced a myriad of problems including injury and lack of playing time as a result of the surplus quality in Chelsea’s midfield. Antonio Conte’s signing and subsequent formation change further complicated things for the Brazilian.
Lucrative Transfer To China
Oscar left Chelsea in December 2016 in a sensational lucrative move to Chinese side Shanghai SIPG. Oscar has so far scored two goals in 18 appearances. His debut goal for Shanghai SIPG received rapturous applause from the sea of red in the stands; he has since gone on a goal drought after scoring his second for SIPG.
The Brazilian insists he doesn’t rule out a return to the premier league, preferably Chelsea. I would be very happy to return, who knows in two years, maybe three, he said.
The allure of a playing in Europe again seems like a source of motivation for the Brazilian born midfielder.
Chelsea’s Brazilian contingent have waned over the years, but a partnership with David Luiz and Willian Borges seems more favorable for Oscar.
