The future of Oscar at Chelsea has remained under scrutiny for much of the season with what happened on Saturday not helping to calm speculation. Oscar, due to be named on the bench, went home sick with Stomach problems before the game.

This was reported by Mark Worrall on the CFCUK stall outside Fulham Broadway ninety minutes before kick off:

As I said this only adds to the speculation regarding his future with many reports stating that he will be one of the players sold by Antonio Conte this summer.

Oscar has been the subject of transfer speculation for the last couple of summers and this past summer was no different with him being linked with a move to Juventus as the successor to Andrea Pirlo who had left the Italian giants for the MLS.

When asked of the speculation back in July, Oscar denied any thoughts of leaving and re-iterated the fact that he had recently signed a long-term contract with Chelsea and that he wanted to "stay a long time".

As our poor season played out in front of our eyes, Oscar found himself in and out of the starting eleven and once again he could not hold down and regular place in the side. He either starts and is replaced during the game, or he comes on in games as a substitute and very rarely plays 90 minutes. It's been the same under Guus Hiddink as it was under Mourinho and I just wonder what the general feeling is about him behind closed doors?

Moving onto this past summer and it was revealed that a move to China for extortionate amounts of monies was turned down followed by a reported bust-up with Diego Costa which as you can imagine feeds those in the press even further with the latest in a long line of speculation last Saturday only increasing the focus on his future.

What do you people think of Oscar? I really, really like him as a player and feel that we need to use him in the right area. Is he a number ten? Is he a box-to-box midfielder that can play as part of a 4-3-3 formation? These are questions that are still being asked despite the fact he has been here for a couple of years now.

I personally believe that if we allow Oscar to leave we could have egg on our faces as we have done with Kevin De Bruyne. All it takes is confidence to know you are going to play week in, week out and have the freedom to express yourself and Oscar would really develop the obvious ability and talent that he has to thrive playing the game he loves.

I'd keep him for next season all day long but feel that he could be an asset that Chelsea could easily decide to cash in on.

Would you keep him?
