Shanghai SIPG star Oscar: I'd like Chelsea return to end my career

Brazilian playmaker Oscar says he would like to return to Chelsea in the future.

Oscar starred for the Blues between 2012 and 2017 before making a shock move to Shanghai SIPG, worth a reported £60m.

"I don't think about leaving China," the 29-year-old midfielder 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.

"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: 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."
