Chelsea midfielder Oscar is set to become among the highest paid players in the game.

The Sun says he is set to become the third highest paid player in the world earning an astonishing £400,000-a-week if he completes his staggering move to China.

The Chelsea midfielder’s £60million move to Andre-Villas Boas’ Shanghai SIPG is “90 per cent” completed.

Laxalt could arrive at Stamford Bridge as a replacement for China-bound Oscar If he finalises his January transfer, it will propel Oscar to becoming the third highest paid player in the world behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Ezequiel Lavezzi.

Portuguese star Ronaldo bagged himself a pay rise at the Bernabeu and wages of £440k a week whilst Argentine Lavezzi pulls in a eye-watering weekly sum of £493,000.
