Oscar open to possible Chelsea return

Shanghai SIPG ace Oscar has left the door open to a return to Chelsea in the English Premier League.

The 26-year-old midfielder is currently in his debut season in the Chinese Super League campaign this season accepting a mammoth £60m offer from SIPG in January.

Oscar was a fan favourite at Chelsea and was one the most influential players, but after being frozen out by Italian boss Antonio Conte, he decided to leave.

However, the Brazilian international has no hard feelings with the Premier League champions and admitted that could be tempted back to his former club.

“Yes, I would go back! I’m still young, I’m still 26 years old,” Oscar told Premier League Brasil.

“Who knows in two, three years to return to the Premier League. I would be very happy. And preferably for Chelsea, who opened the door for me to return.”

Oscar successfully won the Premier League, League Cup and Europa League during his time at Chelsea.
