Now aged 29, the Brazilian enjoyed a glittering career with Chelsea, endearing himself to the support base immediately when he scored a spectacular brace in his first Champions League appearance for the club against Juventus.

During his four-and-a-half years with the west London outfit, he helped the Roman Abramovich-owned side win two Premier League titles which he crowned with the Europa League and the League Cup.

He made over 200 appearances in a blue shirt, finding the back of the net 38 times across competitions.

But in December 2016, it was revealed the playmaker was on his way out, an announcement that culminated in a heartbreaking departure for Chelsea faithful in January 2017 as he sealed a switch to Shanghai SIPG for a reported £60m.

According to Oscar, he has no regrets for making the move but would be open to make a return to Stamford Bridge to retire with the Premier League giants, he told talkSPORT.

“I think about finishing at Chelsea because I had good times before at Chelsea. The club helped me a lot to improve and to do what I always dreamed [of], which was to play in the Champions League.
"If I have a chance to finish my career at Chelsea, it’s a dream for me. Of course, Chelsea don’t like to buy too many older players, which is normal because it’s a top team from Europe, but I will try my best to be fit to finish there."
