Oscar set for move to China

Brazilian international midfielder Oscar is set to become the latest big name to move to China in a £60 million transfer (S$108m) from Chelsea to Shanghai SIPG, British media reported yesterday.

The 25-year-old, who would be the second Brazilian star after Ramires from the Premier League leaders to leave for China in a year, had been persuaded by coach Andre Villas-Boas to join the Chinese club.

Shanghai saw off competition from rivals Jiangsu Suning and Guangzhou Evergrande, managed by former Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari. - AFP
