Oscar joined Chelsea in 2012 as a wonderkid from Brazil. He joined the club from Brazilian side Internacional for over £30m.

Oscar was highly rated when he joined Chelsea and announced himself with a stunning performance in the Champions League against Juventus, scoring two wonder goals in that game.

In his debut season at the club, Oscar formed a beautiful relationship with Eden Hazard and Juan Mata, and their combination was named Mazacar.

After five years at Chelsea, Oscan moved to the Chinese Super League, for a reported £60 million fee as he joined Shanghai SIPG.

After two years in China, Oscar is now ready to return to Europe, and reports claim Inter Milan and AC Milan are interested in the Brazilian. Oscar as well is believed to have missed European football.

When asked if he knew of any interested teams, he told “Yes, I’ve spoken to two Milan clubs in these [last few] weeks.

“I can’t go into details, but, yes, one thing I can say: I want to play in Italy.”

Meanwhile, Swansea City boss Steve Cooper has admitted the Championship club are interested in Chelsea attacking midfielder Kasey Palmer but he admits nothing is confirmed yet.

“There’s nothing to say [on the speculation] at the moment,” Cooper told WalesOnline. “Kasey’s out in Japan with Chelsea. He played some minutes today and it’s great for young players to play in big arenas that the big clubs go to now in pre-season.

“But until such time arrives that something’s done and dusted, we’ll continue to work with the players who are coming to Fairwood every day.

“There are lots of players who we’ve made interest known on, and I think for players who are with the Premier League clubs where they are going on these big tours, it’s difficult to make massive progress on it.

“They’re starting to come back to England now and maybe the players we are talking to, will be a little bit closer to getting done. We’re the same as every other club. In an ideal world, we want to get players in as soon as possible but it’s never that easy, and I’m learning that for the first time.

“But there’s a lot going on behind the scenes and on the pitch.”
