New Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is willing to listen to offers for Brazilian midfielder Oscar who has failed to impress the Italian during his short time at the club.
Conte is thought to have been left unimpressed with the Brazilians work rate for the team, and was lazy during Saturday’s 3-2 defeat to Real Madrid in the USA.
When asked if Oscar was part of his plans for the future, Conte said:
All 29 players [on the clubs pre-season tour] are Chelsea’s players at the moment. After this period I speak with my club.
I agree after this tour to see all the players and then to take a decision. When we finish this period I will take the right decision for the player and for the club.
There are players who will stay and others will go. This is football. It is important to be clear with all.
My aim is to become a team on and off the pitch.
To reach our target at the end of the season.
My experience in my career as player and manager teaches me if you want to fight for the title you must be a team on and off the pitch. It’s very important.
The Brazilian is a £30million target for Serie A club Inter Milan, who have already made enquiries over the midfielders availability.
