Brazilian footballer Oscar looks set to complete his dream move to Chinese football club, Shanghai SIPG in the January window. 

The current Chelsea footballer often retells childhood stories of himself and friends playing keepy-uppy on Copacabana beach whilst dreaming of pulling on the glorious colours of Shanghai. Oscar, Fat Ronaldo, and Pele who were all in the same school year, used to play ‘60 seconds’ on the beach together, shouting out the names of famous Shangai SIPG players as the goals flew in.

‘It’s a dream come true; I would happily pay to play. I don’t want a penny,’ said Oscar.

‘Just remind me again, what colour do they play in?’ Oscar added.
