Chelsea midfielder Oscar has been strongly linked with a move away from the club recently. A host of clubs including Serie A giants Juventus and clubs from Chinese Super League are reportedly interested in the Brazilian.
The 24-year-old has now dropped a massive hint that he would be leaving the West London club in the summer by liking an Instagram post linking him to Juventus. Apparently it’s the second time that he has liked a Juventus-related post.
Following is the original post that Oscar liked on Instagram:
LATEST NEWS| JUVENTUS MANAGER MASSIMILIANO ALLEGRI WANTS A GUARANTEE THAT HE CAN SIGN NUMBER ONE TRANSFER TARGET OSCAR BEFORE AFREEING TO A NEW CONTRACT IN TURIN. The Italian tactician’s current deal with Juve expires in 2018, and the club are keen to tie him down amid rumours linking him to the likes of Manchester United. Still, they will need to back him in the transfer market first, with Allegri eager for the club to sign Oscar from Chelsea this summer. The Brazilian playmaker has long been linked with a move to the italian giants, and is seemingly a top priority for Allegri again this year. The likes of Isco, Javier Pastore and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are also being considered, but Oscar is preferred as Allegri’s ‘wildcard’ option. @oscar_emboaba @juventus Follow Tagged Partners [ Metro.co.uk ]
Oscar hasn’t featured in the Blues’ matchday squad for the last two games and it appears that his career at Stamford Bridge has run its course.
However, a final decision is likely to be taken over his future when manager Antonio Conte takes charge of the club following the European Championships. Previous reports have suggested that Conte wants to use the money from Oscar’s sale to overhaul the Chelsea squad in the summer.
The Brazilian signed for Chelsea for a transfer fee of £19.35 million from Internacional in 2012. He has won the Premier League and Europa League titles during his time at the club.
