The Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG are reportedly prepared to pay €60million for Oscar and make him the highest-paid player in the world.
The Brazil international has only completed 90 minutes once this season, struggling to break into the 3-4-3 system that has propelled the Blues to the top of the Premier League on the back of 10 consecutive wins.
Conte told a news conference of his prospective exit: “I don’t know exactly the amount or situation but I think in the right moment you’ll know the situation, now we have to wait.”
Conte does not fear the newly rich CSL poaching more players, as he expects the pulling power of Premier League football to trump financial gain in most cases.
He said: “The Chinese market is a danger for all teams in the world not only for Chelsea.
“But I think that we must be concentrated on our work, don’t think that in China there is a lot of money and they can take the players.
“I think that this league is fantastic and to play in this league [Premier League] is a great opportunity, an honour, you must be very proud to play in this league because now he’s in the best league in the world to play and for this reason I don’t worry about this.”
