Prior to moving to the Far East, Oscar was widely regarded as one of the most talented players in Europe as he went on to make 200 appearances for Chelsea, arriving from Internacional.

Although he has continued to do well in China, his stock has declined in recent years. However, it is now rumored that Barcelona are interested in signing Philippe Coutinho, who joined Aston Villa on loan and contacted him about leaving.

The report adds that the Catalan giants tried to sign the Oscar in January last year, but did not do so due to financial constraints. It also says that in view of the club’s difficult economic situation, transfers may not be possible, as Brazil have a contract that lasts until 2024.
