New Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is reportedly ready to let midfielder Oscar leave the club this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Rumours suggested that team-mate Willian was being lined up for a big-money move to Manchester United after Jose Mourinho took over at Old Trafford this week, but Conte isn’t keen to let the club’s Player of the Season leave Stamford Bridge, especially to a Premier League rival.

However, it is a different story for Oscar, who endured a frustrating campaign with the Blues, with many of his appearances coming from the bench as he fell in and out of the starting XI under both Mourinho and Guus Hiddink.

Serie A champions Juventus are understood to be the frontrunners for the 24-year-old’s signature, whose future was placed into further doubt when he left it late to pull out of the squad to face Manchester City in April, having originally been named among the substitutes.
