Ezequiel Lavezzi offered incentive to snub Chelsea

Published 1 Comments

Paris Saint-Germain will move to stop Ezequiel Lavezzi joining Chelsea this summer by offering the Argentine forward a bumper new contract this summer, according to Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

Lavezzi has been on Chelsea's radar for more than two seasons dating back to his fantastic time in Serie A with Napoli, where the diminutive attacker become a cult hero to Azzurri fans across five famous seasons at the San Paolo Stadium.

The 29-year-old was reunited with former Napoli team-mate Edinson Cavani at the Parc des Princes last summer and the French champions are so desperate to keep that partnership intact that they will offer Lavezzi fresh terms before next season begins.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is on the lookout for fresh attacking options but will have to continue a reported pursuit of Mario Mandzukic and Diego Costa judging by PSG's early activity, although the Blues are very much in the market for a trusted central striker rather than wide men.

PSG are unsure if Cavani's long-term future lies in the French capital but Lavezzi's situation is very different, despite his current deal expiring in 2016.

Laurent Blanc's side are unmoved by a potential punishment from UEFA under Financial Fair Play regulations and are ready to hand Lavezzi improved terms regardless of any future sanctions.
