Brazilian attacking midfielder Oscar admits he would like to return to Premier League and, in particular, to Chelsea.

The first eight games I played very well, then I had a League Cup game that I left, the team lost and it changed, Then Conte changed the team’s way of playing in a 3-4-3 and I didn’t play anymore, I didn’t have a position to play, because I’m a more offensive midfielder and then it changed a lot. So I decided to leave too, but I left the doors open”. – Oscar told Premier League Brazil – “I would go back! I’m still young, I’m still 26 years old. Who knows in two, three years I would return to the Premier League. I would be very happy. And preferably for Chelsea, who opened the doors for me, to return”.
