Oscar says he is flattered to hear that Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing him from Chelsea this summer but admits a transfer to Parc des Princes would be difficult.

The Brazilian playmaker has been in fine form for Chelsea this season, scoring and creating goals just as well for Jose Mourinho.

It has arguably been the 22-year-old's best season at Chelsea since joining in a £25m deal from Internacional in 2011.

As a result, big-spending PSG, who were knocked out of the Champions League by Chelsea, are being linked with a big money move for him in the summer.

Mourinho has so far failed to entertain to idea of selling Oscar or Eden Hazard, who has also been linked with a switch to the French capital.

But Oscar himself admits that he has been left flattered by the interest and has even spoken to PSG's Brazilian contingent about a potential move.

However, Oscar admits that PSG will struggle to meet Chelsea's asking price for his services, describing a potential move as "difficult".

“I’m flattered PSG are thinking about me, but I'm happy at Chelsea. Paris are a big club, but I'm happy here," he told French television programme Telefoot.

"Lucas, Thiago Silva and I spoke about it a little bit when we met in the Champions League, but there is nothing certain. Because of the transfer fee, they know it will difficult for me to leave."

PSG were rumoured to be readying a huge £41.5m offer for the Chelsea star this summer. Mourinho has already set the asking price for both Hazard and Oscar at £300m.
