Chelsea set for £18m Lavezzi bid
Irrespective of the interruption to football's silly season the FIFA World Cup™ in Brazil represents to insecure players and their agents, the transfer marketplace continue to throw up more interesting moves and rumoured moves.
One of such freshly churned out the mill is the inference that Chelsea are set to sign Ezequiel Lavezzi from French champions, Paris St-Germain.
Of course, this isn't the first time the 29-year-old Argentine who only just moved to the French capital club from Italian side Napoli in the summer of 2012 would be linked with us, as we had heard such talk after he opened the scoring in our 3-1 loss to PSG in the Champions League last term, what's different now is that the French media is awash with reports that "the Blues have opened formal talks with PSG"
I'm not sure what happened to the mooted Firmino deal which in my opinion represents better value for money and fits our youth recruitment policy to the Tee, neither do I have the faintest idea how Lavezzi solves our well documented striking problems in light of the rumoured bid we are also reportedly preparing for Barcelona's Alexis Sanchez, but one thing is certain — Jose Mourinho and crew are behind the scenes building a team to wrest the Barclays Premier League from Man City.
And I couldn't be happier.
How about you?
Do you think we need Lavezzi?
