What would £60m Pogba move mean for Chelsea star Oscar?

Oscar for Chelsea

If Chelsea do sign Paul Pogba is that the end for Oscar's Stamford Bridge career?

This weekend has seen Chelsea heavily linked with a move for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba. The French international might have even sparked the rumours accidentally, after he was spotted playing as Chelsea on Football Manager during a flight with Les Bleus - and had himself in central midfield.

But now the rumour mill is certainly churning and reports in The Mail suggest Chelsea could bid up to £60 million on the player this summer.

But what would that mean for Chelsea's current midfield? In particular the Brazilian midfielder Oscar.

Jose Mourinho is believed to be a fan of Oscar, but his performances tailed off toward the end of last season and if Pogba arrives it is hard to see where Oscar fits in.

Chelsea already have Ramires, they signed Nemanja Matic in January, Marco van Ginkel is back from injury and Cesc Fabregas arrived this summer from Barcelona. Fabregas effectively acts as a replacement for the departing Frank Lampard - but Pogba's arrival would certainly leave Oscar struggling to hold down a first-team place.

Pogba arriving would suggest that Fabregas is being seen as a more advanced midfielder by Mourinho, leaving Oscar struggling to get into the three behind the striker with Cesc, Eden Hazard, Willian, Andre Schurrle, Mohamed Salah and, potentially, the returning Thorgan Hazard to contend with.

Oscar will not want to spend the majority of his time sitting on the bench but when you look at the list anf the way last season finished, it would appear he is the most likely man to miss out.

If Pogba does arrive then Chelsea will also need to make some money ... and Oscar could certainly go for a hefty fee.

The Pogba rumours are currently just that, rumours, but if they become true Oscar might be the man to go out of the exit door.
