The defending Champions of English Premier League are having a nightmare of a season after losing 7 out of their 12 league games this season. Manager Jose Mourinho’s job is in threat even though the club has shown support publicly.
As the sign of the support, Chelsea management is ready to allow Jose Mourinho to spend on players he wants and has given the Portuguese more freedom if reports are to be believed. Some of Chelsea’s top players are already linked with a move away from the club after failing to impress the manager. As a solution to find their form back, Chelsea ready to sell ‘wonder boy’ Oscar and are in the transfer marker for a replacement.
Brazilian wonder boy Oscar dos Santos is the first player on the list who is a top target for Italian champions Juventus throughout the summer. But, Chelsea football club rejected all the proposals, putting faith on the 24-year-old attacking midfielder.
Before the start of the season, Mourinho claimed that Oscar will make a notable improvement in his game this season. He also made Oscar as his favorite No.10. But, the Brazilian not only failed to improve he also lost his usual game. As a result, he lost his starting berth to fellow Brazilian Willian, the only appreciable player for Chelsea this season.
Oscar had a dream start to his Chelsea career, but he did not make the full use of it. Failing to up his game to another level amid having all the requirements within him. He has got that typical Brazilian flair, a good passer by nature, can aim for goal from distances, good in doing one to one passes. His abilities to defend and recover positions has been an edge for him in the last two years since Jose Mourinho preferred his attackers to track back and defend when needed.
The boy who benched the fan favorite and Chelsea’s two times Best player award winner Juan Mata has not lived up to the expectations after the former left the club to join Manchester United.
Oscar always had mixed reception from the Chelsea crowd and this decision of the club to fire one of the most promising youngsters in the world will also have the same kind of reactions. But, the situation Chelsea are in now there is no chance that either Jose Mourinho or Roman Abramovic are going to hear the criticisms. The club desperately wants to get their form back and no player will get an excuse as if the things continue the same way.
