United Linked With Lavezzi

Ezequiel Lavezzi
Manchester United are being linked with interest in Napoli striker Ezequiel Lavezzi.

According to Il Giornale di Napoli, the Red Devils are ready to put in a bid for the 27-year-old Argentine who scored 11 goals in 42 games for Napoli this season and has caught the eye of a number of top European clubs.

Lavezzi wants to leave Napoli after five years with the Serie A side but the 31million euro (£25million) release clause in his contract is likely to prove a stumbling block.

His preference is to move to Inter Milan but their failure to qualify for the Champions League has severely affected their ability to compete in the transfer market this summer and a £25million bid for Lavezzi is out of the question for them.

Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be interested and could afford to pay his release fee although Lavezzi is said not to be keen on a move to France.
