Paris Saint-Germain are preparing to offer Chelsea a lucrative deal in exchange for their young Brazilian playmaker Oscar, reports the Daily Mirror.
Thanks to Uefa's Financial Fair Play regulations, it looks as though Chelsea will have to sell some of his key stars in order to raise funds to sign a world-class centre-forward to solve their striker crisis.
French giants PSG have used their Champions League tie against Chelsea to hassle the Blues over star players Eden Hazard and Oscar and believe they now have a chance to sign the Brazilian international.
PSG will offer Jose Mourinho double the £19m Chelsea paid for Oscar when signing him from Internacional two years ago. That would represent a significant profit for the Blues and would give them enough money to purchase key target Diego Costa, who is believed to have a release clause in the region of £32m.
Mourinho is reluctant to sell one of his key players, of which Oscar is considered, but understands that funds will have to be generated before he can solve Chelsea's problems up front.
The Special One is believed to be considering a complete overhaul of his forward line and is ready to offload Demba Ba and Fernando Torres while also letting Samuel Eto'o leave when his contract expire in June.
There are even reports that Mourinho is willing to cash in on Romelu Lukaku with figures between £20m and £25m being mooted around.
In exchange Mourinho wants the La Liga star Costa, Bayern Munich's Mandzukic and could also make a move for Monaco's Radamel Falcao but Chelsea will continue to track his recovery from a serious knee injury before considering a transfer move.
