Oscar: I would like to return to Chelsea

English Premier League

Brazilian midfielder Oscar says he would like to return to Premier League giants Chelsea one day.

Oscar spent five years as a player at Stamford Bridge between 2012 and 2017, where he won two league titles, a UEFA Europa League title and the Carabao Cup.

The Brazilian then left London for Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG, but he admits he would like to return to the Blues for a second spell before he hangs up his boots.

"I don’t think about leaving China," Oscar told Yellow and Green Football.

"There is a great project for me here - but, to end my career, I would like to return to Chelsea. I built a beautiful story there and went to the Premier League very young, at a time when fans did not trust Brazilian players that much.

"I helped change that. I’ll be a bit older when I try this move again but, as I am playing very well, with good stats, I feel there is still a place for me at Chelsea."

The 29-year-old also revealed two of his favourite moments from his time with Chelsea, which he says are just two of the many great memories he has from his time at the club.

"I could take up all this interview talking about the good moments and memories I enjoyed at Chelsea, but I have two others that I appreciate the most," he added.

"[They are] my first hat-trick, against MK Dons, and a game against Arsenal where I did not score but did eight slide tackles. The fans applauded me when I got subbed off and it felt as if I’d scored a hat-trick then too."
