Paris Saint-Germain may well include Ezequiel Lavezzi in any proposal they put forward to try and land Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, according to reports in France.
French newspaper Le 10 Sport, citing reports from Italy’s Gazzetta dello Sport, claims that the reigning Ligue 1 champions have now dropped their interest in Paul Pogba and are turning their attentions to Hazard in the hope of securing him for next season. However, whilst the club remain heavily under scrutiny for their breach of the Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules, it’s believed that they have come to terms with the fact that in order to get a big-name player in, they’ll have to also see one shipped out.
Chelsea growing interest in Lavezzi has reportedly prompted PSG to consider throwing the winger into the mix, as they believe it may be enough to convince Jose Mourinho to part with his star man, whilst also leaving them breathing room with regards to what they can offer for Hazard.
The Belgium international’s situation at Stamford Bridge has come under the microscope in recent weeks, after his decision to criticise Mourinho’s tactics and the manager’s subsequent response. Could it be that the Blues would be prepared to let him leave for the right kind of return?
