Jose Mourinho names his price for Oscar and Eden Hazard

New, comments

I guess we're a 'selling club' now

During today's press conference, Jose Mourinho was asked if he was irritated by recent reports popping up about PSG's interest in both Eden Hazard and Oscar. He responded with the following:

"No, it's not irritating. It's no problem. If there is Financial Fair Play, they don't have the money to buy them. If there is no Financial Fair Play, £300m for both, Chelsea have to think about it."

Mourinho has never been anything other than straightforward and brutally honest with the press, so we clearly need to be concerned that both of the pair will be leaving this summer. After all, Chelsea have a long and storied history of watching their best players leave for either domestic or continental rivals just as they're reaching the prime of their career, so that Roman Abramovich can fill the walls of Stamford Bridge with money that he won't ever let the club see.

Just when it looked as if Chelsea were going to be able to compete with the big clubs in England again, we're about to start selling our best players. Wasn't FFP supposed to fix this mess, and stop those nasty, rich clubs from buying up all of the best players and paying them ridiculous money? Damn you, Michel Platini.
