PSG’s Lavezzi to join Hebei China Fortune

Paris, Feb 12 (IANS) Paris Saint Germain’s (PSG) Argentine forward Ezequiel Lavezzi will leave the French football club to join the Chinese Super League side Hebei China Fortune, according to reports.

The Chinese club sealed the deal, although it has not been officially announced, emphasising that the transfer value will be less than 10 million euros ($11.3 million), reports Efe.

Lavezzi, whose contract with PSG will expire next June, will support the lines of the Chinese club, which recently promoted to the Chinese Super League.

Media reports cited officials close to the French club saying on Thursday that although PSG coach Laurent Blanc does not include the Argentine international in matches for the current period, but Lavezzi will not leave the French capital “immediately.”

The Argentine player moved from Napoli to PSG in 2012-13 season, where he played 161 matches and scored 35 goals and made 24 assists.

However, Lavezzi is not a starter with PSG amid the presence of great stars in his position, including Swede Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
