And the 25-year-old Brazilian playmaker believes that the Chinese Super League could eventually compete with the Premier League if more star names make the move to Asia.
As Oscar has recently said in an interview with Sky Sports, "If they continue in this way, maybe yes, because they have lots of good projects,"
"Of course the Premier League [has higher] level of players in the world but the Chinese guys are very good. They help the new players a lot and I hope they continue this because I come to help.”
"The transfer was good for me, good for Chelsea, good for Shanghai, and I'm so happy to come to the Chinese Super League.”
"I think the Chinese clubs [spend] a lot of money for the players to go to China, to make the league stronger. They made me an offer and I'm very happy to come."
