Only a £300m bid from PSG would tempt Mourinho to sell Hazard and Oscar

Jose Mourinho has admitted Chelsea would have to consider bids from Paris Saint-Germain for Eden Hazard and Oscar... if the French club offer £300m for both.

The French club had been publicly courting the duo, with a bid of around €50m believed to have been on the cards before the World Cup.

Following Yohan Cabaye's claim that Eden Hazard would be the perfect signing for PSG, Lucas Moura has admitted he would love Oscar to join him at the Parc des Princes.

"Oscar is a very good player," said Moura. "A rare talent in today's football. "We need someone like him at PSG. I think he would help us a lot. I would be very happy if he came to PSG."

Despite suspicious at the timing of the comments ahead of such an important game, Mourinho has poured cold water on the likelihood of either player moving with FIFA’s Financial Fair Play rule meaning the French outfit could not afford the duo.

"No. It's not irritating,” the Chelsea manager said today when asked if he was annoyed with the speculation.

“ No problem. If there is Financial Fair Play, they don't have money to buy them.”
