Chelsea fans urge Antonio Conte to sell this player in January: Say they’ve had enough of him
CHELSEA fans are desperate for Antonio Conte to sell Oscar.
The Brazilian, 25, has lost his place in Conte’s team following the change to a 3-4-3 formation.
And now the Stamford Bridge faithful want him to go for good.
Supporters have rushed on to fans’ forum theshedend.com to vent their frustrations with the frontman.
One wrote: “I had really high hopes for Oscar at Chelsea, never once thought he wasn’t good enough to be in this squad. But lately I’m thinking a move away might be best for all concerned.”
Another said: “If Conte manages to get rid of Mikel and Oscar AND manages to get us to play great football all in the space of a year he’s already a club legend.”
While a fellow fan added: “He was never any good, only difference now is he is 25 so the he’s young give him time line can’t wash anymore.”
The criticism of Oscar is a running theme in the thread entitled ‘Oscar – Little Diamond’ which began soon after he signed for the club.
A fellow supporter said: “On a decline for a few seasons now, can’t start and offers nothing in the new system. He is still only 25 years old meaning that we could even make a profit on him, 19.35 mill was the original fee i can see him going for 25 mill which would be fair.”
Another reckons he’s set for China and wrote: “It would be amazing if we are able to offload him and even make a small profit out of it.
“There are a number of players in the Brazilian national teams playing in China, so I wouldn’t rule out Oscar is going there.”
Oscar snubbed the chance to join Chinese club Jiangsu Suning in January.
But their owner, the Suning Commerce Group, have since taken over at Inter and they could try and take him there.
Oscar, who signed for Chelsea in 2012, is under contract until 2019.
