oscar is expected to earn £350,000-a-week and set to become the third highest paid footballer in the world (ronaldo first messi second)

God if an average player like Oscar can earn that much money I should've tried to become a pro footballer and changed my nationality and name to a Brazilian one.

Insane deal. Kante cost us less than half of this £60m fee.

Our Brazilians

In 2012 I predicted he would become a better player than Eden Hazard. With the help of my friends and family I have since been able to overcome my crack addiction

Hazard is Hazard, Oscar is Oscar and Mata is Mata.

I generally don't like the "He's got to go..." etc. stuff that happens in modern football (ie. loyalty is a one way street).  But, for that kind of money...Christ, I don't even know what to say.  Wrap him up in cotton, make sure nothing happens to him.  This deal going through would be amazing.

2 x Kante for 1 Oscar?  Okay.  

AVB was a big Mikel fan too...

Good news guys, he just gave an interview to Globoesporte ( Brazil´s biggest sporting media outlet) that his transfer to China is 90% complete, and that only a few bureaucratic issues are missing, so there you go, another 80M euros in the bank, straight from the Lions mouth

Can you find a source for this?

I know hes not lived up to the potential we hoped but the lads showed moments of pure genius that I thank him for..

His/OUR problem is/was that there just wasn't enough of them.

I dont hate the guy but  just like Mikel/RLC/Iva theyre just collecting dust and need upgrading.

This thread tho is reminding me of Luiz's. Just take a few minutes and take a looksee at some of the hate posts made about him at the time he was leaving!.

Amazing how things change eh!

I was happy when Luiz got sold. I do however believe that there is a difference between the situations. Luiz had clear ability, and a passing range/technique rarely found in central defenders. There were games where he was pure steel in the back, while pinging accurate balls around the pitch. Unfortunately, he also showed a strong tendency to lose his head/focus, and negatively impact a game a bit too often. He played with us for several years, and that tendency did not disappear, so I simply assumed it something he would retain.

Indeed, you can still see it when he plays today, such as when Spurs scored against us lately. For the amount of money offered, selling him was the right choice. The difference to me when comparing with Oscar, is that Luiz only needed to improve his concentration and decision making. If he managed that, he was a world-class defender. Whether it is Conte, his years in Paris, the new formation or whatever, it seems that he has improved enough in those two aspects to be at the very least close to world class. 
For Oscar, I can not say that he is amazing in some regards but just shy of some characteristics to become world-class. He is good at passing, he is strong for his size, he works hard and has a nice shot in him. However, he is not an amazing at any of those areas while also being slow, rarely beating his man and being inconsistent. There is simply too many areas where he is lacking, and some of them are related to what kind of a player he is. He is a Mata that is better defensively, but worse attacking-wise in almost every sense. At best I would put him in a team like Everton, but even then its barely. 

He is average, and I do not see him ever justifying such a transaction fee purely on ability for a team in Europe. The money can be put to much better use, it is an incredible deal for us.
