Lavezzi set to seal switch to Paris SG
Ezequiel Lavezzi’s transfer to Paris St Germain will be completed next week, according to the player’s agent.
The Argentina international is set to join the French giants in a £21 million deal from Napoli.
Reports in Italy claim PSG have offered Lavezzi a five-year contract and a salary of five million euros per season.
Lavezzi has been strongly linked with a move away from Naples for some time, with Manchester City and Inter also among the clubs reportedly chasing the 27-year-old striker.
“We hope that the contract will be signed on Monday,” Lavezzi’s agent Alejandro Mazzoni told Sky Italia yesterday.
“There are still a few minor details to be discussed by both clubs. 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.”
Lavezzi, whose contract runs to 2015, joined Napoli from San Lorenzo in 2007 and played a key role in helping the club re-establish themselves as a major force in Serie A.
