25-year-old Brazilian superstar Oscar has been undoubtedly the biggest name to make a move in the ongoing transfer window.

Chinese powerhouse Shanghai SIPG broke their bank to prize away the midfielder from Chelsea for a reported fee of sixty million pounds.

And that’s not all, Oscar’s salary is reported to be somewhere in the region of 500,000 pounds per week.

German superstar Julian Draxler ended his Wolfsburg nightmare by joining French giants Paris St. Germain.

PSG snapped up the talented attacking midfielder for 34 million pounds and Draxler has already made his intentions clear in France by scoring on his competitive debut.

Gabriel Jesus: Manchester City (28 Million Pounds)
