The transfer of Chelsea midfielder Oscar to China is completed. The 25-year-old Brazilian has signed with Shanghai SIPG, and according to various media the bestbetaalde player in the world.

Reportedly going to the 48-fold international about 470.000 euro per week, which equates to an annual salary of nearly 24.5 million euro. Cristiano Ronaldo earns at Real Madrid 24 million euros, though its revenue through sponsorship deals even further.

Chelsea will receive around 70 million euros for Oscar. Last week told the player that the deal is ninety percent around. “It depends only on a few bureaucratic details,” said the midfielder. Oscar is at Shanghai SIPG team-mate of his fellow countryman, Hulk, which this summer happened to FC Zenit.

Former Chelsea manager André Villas-Boas is the coach of Shanghai SIPG, which this year finished third in the Chinese Super League. The new season begins in February.
