The 26-year-old ex-Chelsea midfielder eyes shock return to Stamford Bridge

October 12, 2017

The former Chelsea midfielder Oscar has revealed that he wants a Premier League return before the age of 30 and is hopeful of rejoining the Stamford Bridge club.

The Brazilian midfielder departed the west London side in a big-money move to the Chinese Super League in January, costing Shanghai SIPG around £60m to sign.

Oscar has been in inspired form this term, playing a direct part in nine goals in 17 matches for the Red Eagles, but the South American is already considering a Chelsea reunion further down the line.

During his interview, Oscar said: “Yes, I would go back. I’m still young, I’m 26 years old. Who knows, in two or three years to return to the Premier League… I will be very happy. And preferably to Chelsea, who opened the doors for me to return.”

The 26-year-old maestro won the Premier League title with the Blues back in 2015 and received a second winner’s medal after playing nine times last season.

Meanwhile, Steaua Bucuresti attacker Florinel Coman has emerged as a transfer target for Chelsea.

The 19-year-old youngster, who predominantly plays as a left winger but is equally adept across the front line, has been capped five times by Romania’s Under-21 side.

Florinel Coman was given his first chance when he was promoted from Vitorul Constanta’s academy by legendary countryman Gheorghe Hagi back in 2015 and was duly snapped up by Steaua in August.
