Jose Mourinho has admitted Chelsea would have to consider bids from Paris Saint-Germain for Eden Hazard and Oscar... if the French club offer £300m for both.
PSG, who face Mourinho's side in the Champions League quarter-final, are considering a move for Oscar before the World Cup.
The recent charm offensive, which saw Brazilian Lucas Moura admit he would love Oscar to join him at the Parc des Princes, came a week after Yohan Cabaye’s claim that Eden Hazard would be the perfect signing for the club.
In an era of Uefa's Financial Fair Play regulations, PSG should not be able to consider signing the playmaking pair, according to Mourinho, who believes the astronomical spending of the likes of Manchester City, PSG, Monaco and others should be scrutinised by the footballing authorities.
However, if FFP is not applied to PSG, Mourinho suggested the pair could be sold - at a price.
Mourinho said: "No. It's not irritating. No problem. If there is Financial Fair Play, they don't have money to buy them.
"If there is no Financial Fair Play and they threw something crazy, £300million for both, I think Chelsea has to think about it."
Chelsea are currently top of the Premier League table after hammering Arsenal 6-0 last weekend, but Mourinho still believes referee Chris Foy's performance in the defeat at Aston Villa the week before could cost Chelsea the title.
Asked if the Villa match could prove costly, Mourinho said: "Yes, because the other matches we lost because we didn't play well, because the opponent was better than us, because we missed big chances.
"If you go to the other matches you find the natural reasons for losing a match, if you go to the Villa match it's difficult.
"What happened in the defeat against Villa I never learn, I never accept. Somebody was very successful in putting a hurdle in front of us. And we crashed the hurdle against Aston Villa and we lost.
"Villa was not a normal football match and we always hope that football matches are normal."
Mourinho will face a personal Football Association disciplinary hearing at the end of next week to challenge his improper conduct charge issued following his dismissal at Villa.
"If you lose in the right way you have to move on and try not to lose again," said Mourinho, who faces a £10,000 fine for his second sending-off of the season.
"The only thing I didn't learn is to lose with that kind of referee performance, because it's not a mistake, it's a performance.
"I learn to control my emotions and I learn to calm down in the moment like I did, but I don't learn how to accept that kind of performance."
Chelsea next travel across London to face Crystal Palace on Saturday.
