The mass migration eastwards continues apace with the news that Ezequiel Lavezzi has become the latest star name to sign up for a Chinese Super League side, namely Hebei Fortune.
Hebei have reportedly paid PSG a whopping £23.5million to procure Lavezzi’s services. The Argentinian striker only had six months left to run on his contract at the Ligue 1 giants.
Strangely however, the local Chinese media are claiming the fee as a piffling £5.5million. Who to believe?
It’s being reported that Lavezzi, 30, will earn around £400,000-a-week at Hebei, where he joins fellow European footballing ex-pats Gervinho, Stephane Mbia and Gael Kakuta.
It’s bloody nice work if you can get it.
