Chelsea to sell Oscar

Chelsea will permit Oscar sale

Chelsea will listen to offers for midfielder Oscar after new boss Antonio Conte sanctioned his sale. The Italian head coach is eager to break the Brazilian clique ahead of his arrival to Stamford Bridge.

Oscar, 24, largely underperformed during the previous campaign, and was one of those blamed for manager Jose Mourinho's dismissal midway through the season.

The Telegraph says the Brazil international could find himself at a new club in the summer with Conte not keen on having the player in his squad.

Italian champions Juventus are currently heading the queue to sign the attacker whilst there is high interest from several clubs in the Chinese Super League.

Oscar amassed 27 league appearances for the Blues, who finished at a lowly tenth last season.
