Chelsea will look to use Oscar as bait to land Juventus star Paul Pogba, as the Londoners look to muscle in and capture the in-demand star. The Blues were not thought to be in the running for the 20-year-old star, who has been a revelation since his switch to Italy.
But according to French newspaer Le 10 Sport Jose Mourinho is keen to land the player, who is valued at as much as 80m.
The Portuguese sees the former United youngtser as having a superb all-round game and would propel Chelsea to a new level. But Mourinho knows the Serie A giants are loathe to lose their most prized asset and would need convincing – with Oscar his trump card. Although the former Real Madrid boss does not want to lose the Brazilian he already has Eden Hazard, as well as a clutch of other flair attackers at his disposal and would regard it as good business to secure an exchange deal. Real Madrid, Paris Saint Germain and Manchester United have all been tracking the French midfielder, who looks set to leave the Serie A club in the summer. Watch Arsenal v Man City Saturday or Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur, Sunday.
