Chelsea have been boosted in the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain star Ezequiel Lavezzi, as it’s reported that the French giants will be forced to part ways with him if they are to fund their own transfer ambitions.
According to French newspaper Le 10 Sport, citing L’Equipe, the reigning Ligue 1 champions have to finance their dealings in the market this summer by generating their own money in order to fall in line with the Financial Fair Play rules As such it’s believed that they will consent to the departure of Lavezzi as they see him as surplus to requirements.
More interesting is that PSG’s priority target happens to be Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, who will more than likely cost upwards of £50million. The Belgian star is coming off the back of yet another scintillating campaign in the Premier League but hasn’t been without his troubles under Jose Mourinho and may yet decide that he wants to return to France.
Referring back to an earlier conundrum however, PSG would only be able to afford Hazard were they to part ways with Lavezzi, who is coincidentally wanted by the Blues. This would mean in effect that Chelsea could guarantee themselves the Argentinian winger if they consent to the departure of Hazard.
