Chelsea star set for exit as incoming manager plots major overhaul

Chelsea star Oscar is being tipped for an exit this summer as incoming manager Antonio Conte prepares to overhaul his squad, Telegraph reports.

The 24-year-old struggled to hold down a regular role under interim boss Guus Hiddink last season, with Serie A giants Juventus along with a number of clubs in China also monitoring his situation.

Aside from the midfielder, a host of players are also being linked with an exit as Conte looks to rebuild the squad when he finishes his duties with the Italy national team at EURO 2016.

January loan star Alexandre Pato is not expected to be given a permanent deal after failing to impress since his arrival, while star striker Diego Costa could be sold following a host of disciplinary issues.

The Blues mounted a very disappointing title defence during the previous season as they only managed to finish in 10th place.

Oscar started 20 Premier League matches this term, featuring another seven times from the bench, scoring a total of three goals while providing another three assists.
