Shanghai midfielder Oscar pushing to join Barcelona

Shanghai FC midfielder Oscar is pushing to join Barcelona.

Marca says the 30-year-old is currently the fifth best-paid star in the game on around £400,000-a-week - but he is prepared to take a significant wage cut to seal a switch to the Nou Camp.

The financial problems at Barcelona have stopped them from being able to register Ferran Torres after he signed from Manchester City.

However, club president Joan Laporta is openly bullish about more additions arriving at the club this month.

He said: “Everybody should get ready, as we are back as big players in the market."

Now it seems a move for Oscar could be on the cards.

The former Chelsea star is currently in the off-season in China but has enjoyed success since arriving in the Far East.

The ex-Internacional man won the league title in 2018 and the Chinese Cup the following year.
