The £35 million-rated Brazilian has come in for a little criticism of late after being yanked off at half-time against Paris Saint-Germain and Stoke City, fuelling talk of a move away. But Oscar isn’t interested in going anywhere.
“I’m very happy here, I get along with everyone and the club shows its praise to me.
“Chelsea is one of the best clubs in the world so I can’t see why I would think of leaving the club.”
The 23-year-old playmaker has been linked with a move to Juventus, in a potential a player-plus-cash deal for the in-demand Paul Pogba.

“I’m very happy with Chelsea’s season so far,” he added. “I’m happy with my own performances as well but reckon that I could have contributed more to the team.
“There are different tactics depending on the opponent we face and we respect the manager’s choices. Sometimes I ended up not playing the entire match but I’m doing my best to fulfil my role. So yes, I’m happy with my performances.”
Oscar seems to be content with working hard for his place in the starting 11, which is the exact mentality Jose Mourinho wants from his players and a move away this summer would not look likely at this point.
Will Oscar be a Chelsea player next season?
