5 Most Expensive January Transfers in Football History
#4 Oscar: Chelsea to Shanghai SIPG - £60m
Oscar was seen as a legend in the making when he arrived at Chelsea. In fact, Jose Mourinho had decided to build his team around Oscar when he decided to sell Mata to Manchester United.
Oscar made over 200 appearances for Chelsea and scored some stunning goals and created many others. Oscar was one of the first talents who decided to move to the Chinese league for big money, and it was surprising, as his age was the right one to peak in Europe. In the 29 games that the Brazilian has played in the Chinese League, he has scored 12 and provided 18 assists which are good numbers for an attacking midfielder.
Many think that his international career is over as coaches sometimes oversee a player plying his trade in lower leagues of the world, but Oscar still has the talent and time to again sign for a European biggie in the near future.Published 25 Jan 2019, 16:00 IST
