Chelsea are encouraging PSG to bid for Jose Bosingwa.

The Daily Mail says Bosingwa is out of contract in the summer and the Blues want to recoup some of the £16.3million they spent on the defender in 2008.

The 29-year-old is a regular under Andre Villas-Boas but he has refused to sign a new deal and could leave for nothing at the end of the season.

Chelsea are hoping former manager Carlo Ancelotti, now in charge of mega-rich PSG, will pay a fee for Portuguese full-back Bosingwa this month.
