The Blues have been linked with a move for Pogba in recent days and Daily Star reports Chelsea’s offer could include Oscar and a stack of cash for the France international.
Oscar saw his playing time largely reduced last term as Chelsea went on to claim its fourth Premier League title, and reports suggest Jose Mourinho may be willing to allow the Brazilian to leave if it resulted in Pogba’s arrival at Stamford Bridge.
The 23-year-old hit the back of the net six times in 28 Premier League appearances last season, but the addition of Pogba to what already is a star-studded squad would surely be to good to turn down.
Pogba has also been linked with moves to Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain, with the latter two reportedly happy to match his £200k-a-week wage demands.
It is believed he favouring a move to Barcelona, however the Catalan giants cannot sign any players until 2016 due to a FIFA-imposed transfer ban.
