CHELSEA HAVE ANNOUNCED that midfielder Oscar has agreed to join Chinese Super League club Shanghai SIPG.

Following widespread speculation, the Brazil international has finalised a move after the Premier League leaders accepted an offer reportedly worth €60 million, with the player set to earn a reported £400,000 (€470,000) a week.

The 25-year-old will join the CSL outfit at the beginning of the January transfer window, joining former Blues manager Andre Villas-Boas and international teammate Hulk at the club.

Oscar moved to Stamford Bridge in 2012 from Internacional and won the Europa League, the EFL Cup and the Premier League in his first three seasons with the club.

He fell down the pecking order following the arrival of Antonio Conte as manager, however, and has only started one match since September.

Writing in his Daily Mail column last week, Jamie Carragher questioned the player’s motives.

“It is embarrassing that a player would give up his career and the chance to compete for the biggest prizes in the game just for money,” the former Liverpool defender said.

Real Madrid playmaker James Rodriguez has been linked with a switch to the Blues as a result of Oscar’s departure.
