French daily L’Equipe claims that the 29 year old will fall victim to PSG’s Financial Fair Play regulations and will be shiped out from France in the summer. Lavezzi has enjoyed yet another stunning season at Parc De Princes having scored 11 goals and grabbing 2 assists in 42 appearances.
Lavezzi would ceaselessly fit into Chelsea’s system in the attacking triumvirate behind the lone striker at Stamford Bridge. The Argentine possess raw pace, capable of beating defenders on the turn and his brilliant dribbling abilities will give the Blues a different attacking edge over Premier League rivals.
Jose Mourinho however needs to act fast as a sparkling performance with Argentina in the World Cup will sky rocket the asking price for the former Napoli winger.
