Chelsea midfielder Oscar is set to move to the Chinese Super League, according to reports.
The Brazilian has found himself as a fringe player under new Blues coach Antonio Conte, and is set to be reunited with his former boss Andre Villas-Boas at Shanghai SiPG.
The 25-year-old is said to have confirmed his own departure from the English club.
“It’s 90 per cent certain,” he told SporTV, regarding his transfer . “It just depends on a few bureaucratic details.”
Oscar has not started for Chelsea since the middle of September.
The transfer fee is understood to be in the region of £60 million.
He would become the second Blues player in the last 12 months to make the switch to China after Ramires joined Jiangsu Suning last January.
This comes after Conte denied that Oscar or Cesc Fabregas would leave the club in January.
“It’s gossip, I’m not going to send them away,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.”They’re important players for Chelsea.”
