Former Chelsea star wants Stamford Bridge return

Former Chelsea midfielder Oscar has revealed the reason he left the Stamford Bridge under Antonio Conte for move to China to join Shanghai SIPG in January for £52m.

He told PL Brasil: "The proposal I had and the situation that was happening to me at the club, both played a part,' he said.

"The first eight games I played very well, then I had a League Cup game (against West Ham) where I started on the left and the team lost and changed.

"Then he (Antonio Conte) changed the team's way of playing in a 3-4-3 and I did not play anymore, I did not have a position to play, because I'm a more offensive midfielder and then changed a lot.

"So I decided to leave too, but I left the door open."

Oscar won the Premier League title with Chelsea in 2015 and received a second winner's medal after playing nine times last season, he also revealed that he will fancy a return to Chelsea in the future.
