Shanghai SIPG signed Brazilian midfielder Oscar from Chelsea and they were ready to pay him well. The star was not selected by Tite to play in 2018 World Cup but when you are getting this kind of money nothing really matters. He takes home £21.1 million per year. This is crazy considering he is not even a striker.
