Oscar has rejected a lucrative bid from China

Chelsea midfielder Oscar has turned down a lucrative move to the Chinese Super League in January transfer window.

The top-flight in East Asia have signed such well-known players as Ramires, Alex Teixeira, Jackson Martinez and Ezequiel Lavezzi.

“There was interest in me but I’ve no desire to leave Europe.

“The idea of moving to China would be such a huge change for me and would go against everything I’ve achieved so far.

“Chelsea are a fantastic, very big club and I’m still young. I’m only 24 so I’ve got a lot of football ahead of me,” Oscar told reporters.
