Despite been highly rated by everyone, attacking midfielder, Oscar has not been so fantastic for Chelsea so far this season.
Only Willian has really been delivering on a consistent basis for Jose Mourinho this season.
This has led to rumours that the Blues boss, Jose Mourinho might be quickly losing his patience with Oscar and could be getting ready to replace him with Bernardo Silva.
Silva who is most comfortable operating in the classic No.10 position, is blessed with terrific technical ability, as well as an eye for goal.
The 21-year-old Portuguese international said to UEFA.com last summer that.
“I always try to make the most intelligent decision when I’m playing, whether it is the right time to increase or slow down the tempo, to all push forward or to play the ball back in order to organise our game.”
This sort of comment is enough to endear any manager to the fantastic player.
The playmaker’s who currently plays for AS Monaco could arrive by January and his arrival would likely mean Oscar gets thrown on the bench for a lot of games.
Although Silva plays in a lesser league and has played more minutes than Oscar. Silva has still scored more than twice as often as Oscar.
Although Oscar passes him with assists but these could easily change with some very good attackers and forwards. in front of him.
We will wait to see what happens by the January transfer window.
