Oscar says he would be ‘delighted’ if former Chelsea team-mate Diego Costa followed him to the Chinese Super League this summer.
The Brazilian made the move to Shanghai SIPG back in January and is keen to see the 28-year-old Spain striker, who has been linked to Tianjin Quanjian, join him in the country.
He told CCTV-5: ‘It’s hard for me to give specific advice to Costa. The only thing I can tell him is that I quite enjoy my life in China.

‘I don’t have any problems so far. The culture here is obviously very different from that of my country, but we are getting used to it, bit by bit.
‘Everyone has got to figure out the things he wants most. And I believe coming to China is the best choice for me.
‘If Costa moves here, I will be delighted. He is pursuing happiness and I hope everyone has a happy life.’

Both players must be pretty content at the moment. Costa has scored 20 goals this season to help Chelsea to the Premier League title, his second at Stamford Bridge, though a move still appears likely this summer.
Oscar and Shanghai, meanwhile, have enjoyed a good start to the Super League season, winning six of their opening nine matches to sit two points behind leaders Guangzhou Evergrande.
