Mourinho quips that £300m would be enough to convince him to sell.
With reports emerging that Paris Saint-Germain are prepared to pay £90m for Chelsea duo Eden Hazard and Oscar, manager Jose Mourinho has responded to the rumours.
The 51-year-old says that the Blues would be willing to sell the attacking midfielders to their quarter-final opponents in the Champions League – but only for a £300m fee.

Of course these comments from Mourinho come with the Portuguese coach’s tongue pressed firmly into his cheek and essentially dismisses any approach from the Parisians for the pair.
Both Hazard and Oscar have been in fine form at Stamford Bridge this term since the former Real Madrid boss took over once again in west London.
Mourinho announced early on upon his return that the Brazilian would be his preferred No.10 this campaign and not fans favourite Juan Mata – who was later sold to Manchester United.
The tactic has worked and in the case of Hazard the Belgium international has been so good he is in with a realistic chance of winning the PFA Player of the Year award.
Whilst Liverpool superstar Luis Suarez is of course the favourite, 16 goals and 10 assists for the 23-year-old has marked another impressive year in England for the winger.
