Lavezzi Snubs Chelsea And Man City By Joining Paris Saint-Germain

Big win for Paris Saint-Germain in the transfer market as they have signed 27-year-old Argentina striker Ezequiel Lavezzi from Napoli for £21million.

Lavezzi had been linked with a move to Premier League sides Chelsea and Manchester City but PSG grabbed him with a five-year deal worth £77,000-a-week.

Lavezzi really impressed with his performances in the Champions League, where his Napoi side knocked Man City out of the competition in the group stages before falling to Chelsea in the knockout round.

Lavezzi’s agent Alejandro Mazzon confirmed his side will be heading to France rather than England saying:

“We hope that the contract will be signed on Monday. There are still a few minor details to be discussed by both clubs but everything should be ready by Monday or Tuesday.

“It’s difficult for Lavezzi to say goodbye to Napoli and once the deal will be completed, he will explain his decision to leave.”
