The mega-rich Parisiens are reportedly considering a £41.5m offer for Oscar before the World Cup and the club’s Brazilian stars are cranking up the charm offensive.

“Oscar is a very good player,” said PSG and Brazil winger Lucas Moura. “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.”

Meanwhile, Yohan Cabaye, who joined PSG from Newcastle in January, has claimed Eden Hazard would be the perfect signing for the Ligue 1 champions. The Belgian has long been linked with the Parc des Princes club.

“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,” said Cabaye.

Chelsea will be suspicious at the timing of the comments, which appear particularly snide after PSG boss Laurent Blanc insisted he would not be drawn into mind games with Jose Mourinho.

The Blues will resist any bids for the attacking midfielder duo in the summer; both players have three years left on their contracts and the club are willing to offer them extensions.
