Oscar will complete his move from Chelsea to Shanghai SIPG in January, the Premier League leaders have announced.
The deal will see Oscar, 25, massively increase his £90,000-a-week wages at Stamford Bridge and become the Blues’ record sale at £60 million, according to ESPN FC sources, eclipsing the £50m fee received from Paris Saint-Germain for David Luiz in the summer of 2014.
Chelsea said in a statement on their official website: “We thank Oscar for his wonderful service and wish him the very best of luck for the future.”
Oscar joined Chelsea from Brazilian club Internacional for £25m in the summer of 2012 and made 203 appearances in all competitions for the Blues, scoring 38 goals and winning the Premier League, Europa League and League Cup during four-and-a-half seasons at Stamford Bridge.
But the Brazil international had not started a Premier League match since September and increasingly became viewed as surplus to requirements following head coach Antonio Conte’s successful switch to a 3-4-3 formation.
