French giants Paris Saint Germain are still interested in Chelsea duo Oscar and Hazard and according to L’Equipe, the French nouveau riches consider them as potential targets to reinforce their midfield.
PSG had registered their interest in both the Chelsea players earlier this season. Ahead of their Champions League quarter final clash against Chelsea, PSG’s Brazilian attacking midfielder Lucas Moura stated that he would love to see Oscar joining them as Parc des Princes.
“Oscar is a very good player. A rare talent in today’s football, given his qualities. He is very complete and is very smart. We need someone like him at PSG.”
“I think he would help us a lot. The more quality players there are, the better it is for the squad. Also, he’s a very good friend of mine. I would be very happy if he came to PSG, the club too.”
Likewise, PSG players have shown great admiration for Chelsea’s Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard, who won the PFA young player of the year recently. Former Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye openly stated his desire to see Hazard in PSG shirt.
“Hazard is the player I’d like to see at PSG. He would do a lot of good to Paris and the league. He’s one of the best players against whom I’ve played.”
However, Jose Mourinho insisted in the era of Financial Fair play, PSG should not show the temerity to sign the Chelsea pair, but if they found a way round it, only ‘crazy’ money would tempt the club to sell.
“No. It’s not irritating. No problem,” Mourinho said, as quoted by The Guardian,
“If there is Financial Fair Play, they don’t have money to buy them.
“If there is no Financial Fair Play and they threw something crazy, £300million for both, I think Chelsea has to think about it.”
Hazard and Oscar are the future of Chelsea. They are the type of players on whom Mourinho would built the team around and no way they will be sold. PSG can simply forget about them and look for other targets.
