Lavezzi tempted by Shanghai

Reports are increasing that Inter and Chelsea target Ezequiel Lavezzi will accept an offer from Shanghai Shenhua.

The rumours emerged a couple of days ago and are intensifying via Sky Sport Italia.

His contract with Paris Saint-Germain will expire in June and he can now begin to negotiate as a free agent.

While Inter and Chelsea have been linked for some time, Lavezzi is now reportedly considering a move to China.

The contract offer is worth an astonishing €10m per year, plus bonuses, although recent reports suggest it can be as much as €16m.

The Chinese transfer window is still open, so they could tempt the Argentine away before the summer.

Meanwhile, there are also reports in Russian paper Izvestia that Shanghai Shenhua offered €90m to sign Hulk, but Zenit St. Petersburg turned them down.
