Chelsea midfielder Oscar is reportedly set to join Shanghai SIPG in incredible £52million deal in January, according to widespread reports.
The Brazilian playmaker appears to be on his way to China to join former Blues boss André Villas-Boas at Shanghai SIPG due to lack of chances under Antonio Conte.
The 25-year-old midfielder has only managed five appearances in the Premier League since the Italian boss arrived in the summer. The Blues had earlier snubbed a bid from Chinese club, Guangzhou Evergrande during the last summer transfer window with hopes that Oscar will fight for his place in the squad with likes of Eden Hazard and Willian to contest an attacking midfield position with.
However, reports in the Daily Mail suggests that Conte has lost his patience with the Brazilian and will let him leave for the right offer which appears to be that of the Shanghai SIPG who are currently coached by Andre Villas-Boas.
Oscar arrived at Stamford Bridge in 2012 for a £25million deal from Internacional and initially impressed for the Blues but began to fall down the pecking order.
Chelsea will buoyed by his sale as they are set to earn £27million profit from a possible £52million deal from the Chinese outfit.
