Chelsea's midfield schemer Oscar has revealed that he has held talks with Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain over a potential move to the club.
The Brazil international, just 22-years-old, has been a mainstay of the Chelsea team over the past two years, racking up over 100 appearances so far in his two-year stint at Stamford Bridge, although suffered for a lack of consistency during the latter part of this season.
Although the French side initially seemed intent on signing his team-mate Eden Hazard Chelsea made it abundantly clear that he would not be sold under any circumstances.
However, their enquiries about Oscar were more fruitful, as it is believed Chelsea would be willing to sell if they received an offer in excess of £40 million, according to the Evening Standard.
This sum should not be a stumbling block for the exceedingly wealthy Paris Saint-Germain, who splashed out the same amount on Oscar's compatriot and former Chelsea team-mate David Luiz. This is likely to be a further attraction for the international playmaker.
Despite admitting to talks and interest, Oscar has hinted that it is unlikely that he will leave Chelsea - for the time being at least.
He said: "I had contacts with PSG, it's true but it did not go further. The next season, I will stay at Chelsea."
Oscar lost his place in the side at the end of last season and will have a tough fight to regain it following the arrival of Cesc Fabregas. He has, though, impressed with his magnificent performances for Brazil thus far in the World Cup.
