Chelsea to listen to offers for Oscar

Published 7 Comments

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is willing to listen to offers for Brazilian playmaker Oscar.

According to, Juventus and Paris Saint Germain are keen on Oscar, who has been valued at £40m by the Stamford Bridge club.

That would represent an almost 100 per cent mark-up on the fee they paid Internacional for his signature two years ago. Mourinho dropped Oscar towards the end of the season after the Brazilian had played a key role in the early months of the campaign.

It was felt that the 23-year-old may have been distracted by the prospect of a World Cup on home soil, and Mourinho took him out of the spotlight as he struggled to maintain his form week-to-week.

If he does go, he's unlikely to be the only big-name departure from Chelsea this term. Mourinho seems to be keen to balance the books, and as he's planning a significant outlay this summer - especially on a striker - he'll have to make up the funds through player sales. 

Manchester City and PSG have already fallen foul of FFP regulations and face UEFA sanctions.

David Luiz is expected to complete his move to PSG in the next few days subject to a medical after Chelsea agreed a fee with the defending French champions.

Eden Hazard is also a target for the Parisian club, while Frank Lampard is out of contract.
