Willian confirms £60m move for Oscar

Oscar set to join SIPG - Willian

Brazil international Willian has confirmed that Oscar has decided to part ways with Chelsea in the winter transfer window. The midfielder has already bid farewell to his teammates ahead of his surprise move to the Chinese Super League.

Oscar, 25, had been struggling for playing time under Antonio Conte this season, and this eventually influenced his decision to join Shanghai SIPG.

Willian has now revealed that his counterpart has finalized his move to the Far East, and wishes him best for the fresh challenge in his career.

Oscar has been the subject of strong criticism from several pundits over the past week, but Willian feels the move is fine for a player, who is looking to make the most of his professional career.

The former Internacional man has appeared over 200 times for Chelsea in all competitions.
