Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich, could let the club’s Brazilian midfielder Oscar depart Stamford Bridge this summer, a report in the Metro on Thursday suggested.
Oscar, who is capped by his country at international level, has had a varied degree of success in his four-seasons at the west Londoners, and is seemingly not in the long-term plans of the Blues, when Antonio Conte is appointed as the new manager in the summer.
A likely destination is the Italian Serie A – where AC Milan, Juventus and Napoli have all expressed a recent desire in the services of the player. Chelsea could in turn use Oscar as a make-way to fund other potential summer transfers, involving swap deals with those clubs mentioned above.
Chelsea have been linked with Juventus’ French midfielder, Paul Pogba, and Napoli’s Argentine international, Gonzalo Higuain.
