Shanghai SIPG star Oscar admits Chelsea return dream

Shanghai SIPG star Oscar admits his dream is to return to Chelsea.

The 29-year-old left Stamford Bridge in 2017 to join Shanghai SIPG in a £60million deal that has seen him earn £400,000-a-week for the last four years.

However, Oscar is keen to return to the club that helped him win two Premier League titles, the League Cup and the Europa League.

Oscar told talkSPORT: "I think about finishing at Chelsea because I had good times before at Chelsea.

"Chelsea helped me a lot to improve and to do what I always dreamed [of], which was to play in the Champions League and they helped me to play in the World Cup and to win the Premier League.

"I have a lot of friends at Chelsea. If I have a chance to finish my career at Chelsea, it's a dream for me. Of course, Chelsea don't like to buy too many older players, which is normal because it's a top team from Europe, but I will try my best to be fit to finish there."

On Mason Mount, Oscar continued: "I like him [Mount].

"Sometimes he doesn't play like me but sometimes, I watch him and I can see a little bit of me there because I also came into Chelsea when I was so young and played good football.

"I really like him. He has everything you need to improve. He scores goals, he does some important things and he knows how to defend and attack. I really like him."
