Chelsea's out-of-favour Brazilian midfielder confirms that a deal is likely.
Chelsea midfielder Oscar has confirmed he is “90% certain” to move to Chinese Super League club Shanghai SIPG in the January transfer window.
The fee for the 25-year-old Brazilian midfielder is expected to be around £60m. He joined the Blues from Internacional for £25m in 2012. He is expected to earn £350,000 a week at his new club.
The midfielder is out of favour under Antonio Conte, and having started the first five league games under Antonio Conte has only played four times since September.
“It just depends on a few bureaucratic details,” Oscar told Sportv in his homeland.
A move would reunite Oscar with former Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas, who is now in charge at Shanghai.
Oscar has played 202 games for Chelsea, scoring 38 goals, and has won the Premier League, Europa League and League Cup.
