Oscar in Flamengo? Check out the latest player stats!
Brazilian football is about to close its transfer window, a fact that will occur on the 15th. In this way, the teams that are still looking for signings need to race against time to settle details and finalize the agreements until the date.
A team that is in this situation is Flamengo, which is looking for a strong reinforcement. This is midfielder Oscar. Acting at Shanghai Port, in China, the player is looking to be released on loan to stay at Rubro-Negro until the end of the year.
The idea is to have the player in the final stretch of the Brazilian Championship and Copa do Brasil, for those who know, to seek both achievements. Flamengo has already brought in names like Everton Cebolinha and Vidal in this window.
Born in Americana, in the interior of São Paulo, Oscar Emboada is 30 years old and has had a very interesting career. The player came from the base of São Paulo and became a professional for the club.
The midfielder was in the winning squad of the 2008 Brazilian Championship, but had a turbulent departure, suing the club in court alleging irregularities in the contract. Oscar left the Morumbi team in 2010.
He agreed with Internacional and initially joined the Under-23 squad of the club from Rio Grande do Sul. After standing out, he was part of the squad that won the Copa Libertadores and played in the Club World Cup in 2010. A year later, he took the Recopa Sudamericana and the Campeonato Gaúcho, a competition he also won in 2012.
While in Colorado, Oscar lost to São Paulo in court. For the decision, Tricolor received R$ 15 million as a termination fine for breach of contract, and Oscar’s transfer to Inter became the biggest negotiation between Brazilian clubs in value.
On the field, good performances sparked interest in Europe, and Chelsea signed the player for £25m in 2012, the biggest sale by a Brazilian club so far.
In English football, the player managed to win the English League Cup in 2014/15; the Premier League twice, in 2014/15 and 2016/17; in addition to the Europa League, in 2012/13.
In 2016, Oscar broke another record in negotiations: the player agreed with Shanghai Port for € 60 million, the biggest transfer in the history of China. In the team, the Brazilian has already won the Chinese Championship, in 2018, and the Chinese Super Cup, in 2019.
Check out the Oscar numbers for each club:
Last season in Chinese football, Oscar entered the pitch 23 times, scoring five goals and contributing 15 assists. In 2022 there were only three games, with one assist and one goal.
Calls for the Brazilian national team
After being a fixture in the Under-20 competitions, Oscar played in the senior team for the first time in 2011, in a friendly against Argentina.
With hopscotch, the player participated in the London Olympics, with the number 10 shirt. In 2013, the midfielder was one of the highlights in the Confederations Cup title campaign, played in Brazil.
A year later he was confirmed in the final list for the World Cup. However, like the entire team, he did not have much prominence, but he scored the goal of honor in the 7-1 defeat of Germany.
In 2015, Oscar was quoted for the Copa America, but an injury left him out. Already under Tite’s command, he received a call-up in 2016, but was not used.
For the Brazilian national team, the midfielder won the World Cup and South American Sub-20, in 2011; Americas Superclassic in 2011 and 2014; the silver medal at the Olympic Games in 2012; and the Confederations Cup in 2013.
Player receives one of the highest salaries in the world
When he signed with Shanghai Port, Oscar became the third highest paid player in the world, behind only Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi. The salary amount signed was R$ 7 million per month, about R$ 84 million per year, based on values at the time.
Since 2017 in the team, today the player receives 24 million euros per season, almost R$ 130 million reais, an average of R$ 10 million per month. With these figures, Oscar surpassed the revenue of seven Brazilian clubs competing in Série A, taking into account the 2021 numbers. One of these teams was Botafogo, Flamengo’s rival.
To return to Brazil, Oscar needs to give up a lot of money, but he should still have one of the highest salaries in the country. The expectation is that he will close with Rubro-Negro for around R$ 1.5 million per month until the end of the year.
With a possible arrival, Rubro-Negro should gain prominence in the betting
Flamengo should become even more favorites in bookmakers with the possible arrival of Oscar. The team is already at the top of the rankings for the Copa Libertadores and, with the positive outcome of the negotiation, will have one more reinforcement.
It is worth remembering that the player will not be able to play in the Copa do Brasil, as registration for this tournament has closed. However, he will also be able to play in the Brazilian Championship, where Flamengo is making a recovery campaign and continues to dream of the title.
