Chelsea midfielder Oscar is aware of interest in him from China – but could yet be staying at Stamford Bridge, according to Sky sources.

The 25-year-old Brazil international was quoted in the Brazilian media as saying a deal with Shanghai SIPG is “90 per cent right – it just depends on some bureaucratic details”.

But Sky sources understand that Oscar would rather stay at Chelsea and fight for his first-team place.

The midfielder is out of favour under Antonio Conte and the Blues may look to cash in on the player in January, with reports suggesting Chinese club SIPG could offer as much as £52m for him.

The former Internacional star has not started a Premier League game since September.

If the move were to go through, Oscar would have a Brazil team-mate for company in Shanghai – striker Hulk is also on their books.

His former Chelsea team-mate Ramires is plying his trade in China too with Jiangsu Suning and a second, Demba Ba, plays for city rivals Shanghai Greenland Shenua.
