Chelsea were offered Javier Pastore as well as Lucas Moura by Paris Saint-Germain, according to Le10 Sport.
PSG sporting director Antero Henrique has reportedly been tasked with offloading the pair, and he believes that the club’s connections with the Blues could help him sell at least one of the two.
PSG will fall foul of UEFA’s Financial Fairplay rules if they don’t bring in at least £70m, reports the Daily Mail. The heavy outlays on both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe will mean the Ligue One club will have to sell to balance the books.
Le10 Sport say that Moura is the player that Chelsea would likely be interested in. The Brazilian was said to have been offered to the Premier League side a while ago, but at the time the Blues did not want to sign the winger.
Whether things have changed in the intervening period, it remains to be seen. Against Manchester United, manager Antonio Conte opted to keep both Willian and Pedro on the bench which would suggest Moura, another wide player, would not be a priority signing for the Chelsea manager.
The 25 year old has very much been on the periphery of PSG’s first team this season, having being being used exclusively as a substitute. It is a stark contrast to last season when he scored 19 goals and contributed 11 assists.
