Oscar reveals 'dream' is to retire at Chelsea but 29-year-old fears age may stop return as he compares himself to Mount

FORMER Chelsea midfielder Oscar has revealed it is his 'dream' to end his career at Stamford Bridge.

The Brazilian, 29, spent four and a half seasons with the Blues between 2012 and 2017, before leaving to join Shanghai SIPG.

And while he continues to ply his trade out in the Chinese Super League, he does not shy away from the fact that he would like to return to West London.

He told talkSPORT: "I think about finishing at Chelsea because I had good times before at Chelsea.

"Chelsea helped me a lot to improve and to do what I always dreamed [of], which was to play in the Champions League and they helped me to play in the World Cup and to win the Premier League.

"I have a lot of friends at Chelsea. If I have a chance to finish my career at Chelsea, it's a dream for me."

But as Oscar rapidly approaches 30, he is concerned his age may mean Chelsea are not interested in bringing him back to the club.

"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."

Before leaving four years ago, Oscar played 203 times for the Blues and scored 38 goals.

He was a part of Jose Mourinho's side that won the Premier League title in 2015 and then also received a winners medal for the Blues' 2016-17 title triumph, despite having left mid-way through the campaign.

Since leaving European football, Oscar has failed to add to his 48 caps for Brazil, where he has scored 12 goals.
