Paris Saint-Germain are weighing up an extraordinary £41.5million bid for Chelsea midfielder Oscar, according to The Telegraph.
Reports suggest the Ligue 1 side are keen on bringing the Brazilian international to Paris before this summer’s World Cup in Oscar’s homeland.
Laurent Blanc’s side would have to beat off competition from both Barcelona and rivals Monaco if they were to sign the 22-year-old as the duo have also identified Oscar as a summer target.
PSG scouts have reportedly been monitoring Oscar’s progress this season and are said to be pleased with what they have seen from the attacking midfielder.
Oscar has transformed into a vital component of Jose Mourinho’s side by scoring six goals in 27 Premier League games for Chelsea.
Mourinho is unlikely to want to let Oscar go - especially as he allowed Juan Mata to join Manchester United in order to play Oscar in his favoured number 10 role.
However Chelsea’s hierarchy could be tempted into selling Oscar for £41.5million - considering they bought the former Internacional midfielder for £25million in July 2012.
