Ezequiel Lavezzi has finally arrived in Paris upon his mega money move to the club from Napoli.
For weeks the deal has been more or less rubber stamped with only the finer details such as the commission for agents being negotiated. The Argentine arrived at Roissy Airport this morning from Buenos Aires with a beaming smile as he was greeted by – ironically – three Neapolitan fans. He is now currently staying at a hotel in the 9th district.
Tomorrow, the deal will be finalised. The player will undergo a medical at Camp des Loges before putting pen to paper on a four-year contract, with the option of a further year. The transfer fee has yet to be revealed but is believed to be in the region of 26-30m.
This is a massive coup for Les Parisiens who have fought have some of Europe’s heavy hitters for the coveted forward.
