There is one person at Chelsea that isn’t overjoyed by the signing of Cesc Fabregas from FC Barcelona and that is Oscar, according to Goal.

The Brazil international is currently away at the 2014 World Cup in his home country, but fears that upon his return to Stamford Bridge he’ll have found himself replaced.

Oscar was named as Jose Mourinho’s preferred No.10 when the 51-year-old returned as manager last summer, resulting in the somewhat surprising sale of Juan Mata to Manchester United in January.

Yet although things started well for the 22-year-old after this faith was put in him, when the South American’s form dropped after New Year Mourinho wasted no time in dropping the attacking midfielder.

Now with Fabregas also in West London the Brazilian thinks that his game time will be even more limited and will have to impress his manager with his performances at the World Cup.

So far that has worked quite well for the midfield ace, who has been a firm fixture in Luiz Felipe Scolari’s team and has scored one goal and provided one assist so far.

Oscar’s only real hope is that Mourinho chooses to play Fabregas at the base of midfield alongside Nemanja Matic, as opposed in the more advanced role that the star from South American enjoys.
