Getting that notification from Sky Sports News saying Oscar is leaving Chelsea for £60m... pic.twitter.com/6bFcI7N55V— The F2 (@TheF2) December 23, 2016

Oscar is set to join Chinese side Shanghai SIPG for £60m. Football is just so messed up— Mac Boswell (@macboswell) December 23, 2016
“60 MILLION? THAT’S RIDICULOUS!”
60 mil for oscar is madness— Bill Smith (@_billsmith) December 23, 2016
I wouldn't pay £60 for Oscar, let alone £60 million. The world has officially gone mad.— Nice Gary (@DannySenior) December 23, 2016
£60 million for Oscar is fucking outrageous. None of the Chinese clubs want Fellaini no?— Josh Delooze (@JoshDelooze) December 23, 2016
Football is one crazy fucking game oscar for 60 million is the biggest hack ever and that's factsxfacts— Dunsk (@IrishFalcao) December 23, 2016

The meltdown in North London right now
Especially as they will probably let Ozil and Sanchez leave for free

Now it takes £60 million to get the likes of Oscar.
How the market changes...
“It’s a career suicide!”
Oscar this is probably the worst move for your international career— shaq (@sxxrawlins) December 23, 2016
Glad to see another young player throwing their career away for the money!! But suppose you can't reject £60m for a disappointment!! #oscar— Shaun Rumball (@ShaunRumball93) December 23, 2016
Texeira and Oscar surrendered their Brazil career for China lmao— Conte Style (@Pranav_CFC) December 23, 2016
Oscar will earn 20M per year.. tbh he made the right decision imo. That money > every chance he has to help his career.— Barça Lens (@BarcaLens) December 23, 2016
Really gutted that Oscar has decided to go to China, not against him leaving because he doesn't play, but he's throwing his career away— Hashim Rasheed (@ShimShamRasheed) December 23, 2016
Oscar just ended his career by himself, Serie A was probably the best league for him, considering his age & abilities. Too young for China.— NBK (@SimplyMessi10) December 23, 2016
Damn RIP Oscar's Chelsea career— Andrew Yozzo (@AYozzo10) December 23, 2016
Oscar is too young for China. La Liga or Bundesliga was a better destination for him. He has just ended his career by himself— Russell (@FutbolRusseII) December 23, 2016
Let’s blame Mourinho, shall we?
Oscar looked like he had potential, constantly holding his own alongside Hazard and Mata. Mourinho happened.— Dami (@TheChelseaWay) December 23, 2016
Safe to say Mourinho ruined Oscar's career. Got the worst manager for him unfortunately to develop himself even more— Conte Style (@Pranav_CFC) December 23, 2016
Actually didn't mind Oscar when RDM and Rafa were in charge. Mourinho ruined him. Nothing better than Mata-Oscar-Hazard either— Luke (@DLP_Luke) December 23, 2016
Oscar did have crazy potential to be fair, he looked great in his first season. Mourinho came in to suck everyone's talent out of them.— Charlie (@CharlieAlloway) December 23, 2016
Mourinho ruined Oscar just like he was in the process of ruining Eden Hazard. Ruined Joe Cole. Ruined Mata. Anyone with any flair he ruins.— Eoin Walker (@eoin_walker) December 23, 2016
Mourinho destroyed Oscar's career by breaking up MaZaCar. Dude has ruined so many lives it's just sad.— Mwiti (@McMwiti) December 23, 2016
Mourinho destroyed Oscar the fucking boring Portuguese bus driver— Magic Conte! (@EliteConte) December 23, 2016
Remember Mazacar? Oscar showed potential under Di Matteo. Potential that died the moment Mourinho returned. Cancerous manager— 3-Arsenal-3 (@Jeremy_Zuyi) December 23, 2016
