Chelsea’s Oscar to join Shanghai SIPG in China….


Chelsea and Shanghai SIPG have agreed terms for midfielder Oscar to move to the Chinese Super League club in the January transfer window. The 25-year-old Brazil international said earlier this month the move, worth about £60m, was “90% certain”. Oscar joined Chelsea from Internacional for £25m in 2012 and has scored 38 times in 203 appearances for the club. He will complete his move “at the beginning of the January transfer window”, the club said in a statement. Oscar, who has struggled to get into Antonio Conte’s Chelsea side since October, will join former Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas in Shanghai. The Chinese side confirmed Oscar “will arrive in Shanghai in the coming days to officially join SIPG”. The player, who has won the Premier League, Europa League and League Cup during his four-and-a-half-year spell at Stamford Bridge, will earn a reported £400,000 a week.
