The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern knew that it was coming, but they still can’t believe it…
After weeks of speculation, it has finally been confirmed: Oscar is to leave Chelsea in January in favour of a move to China to play for Shanghai SIPG.
It had been coming, but with fees like £60 million being passed around – it appeared too good to be true.
Oscar is a player that has had minutes of genius and hours of ineffectiveness – but often his moments of brilliance were so incredible that they had people talking about them for weeks in the Transfer Tavern.
However, at 25-years-old, Oscar was expected to really cement his place in the Chelsea first team and kick on – but he has stagnated in recent years.
Antonio Conte’s formation switch seemingly put the nail in the coffin for the talented Brazilian, with his natural number 10 position made defunct by the Italian boss.
The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are already thinking about who Conte might sign to replace him…
