Lavezzi: PSG signing only a mere formality

The Argentina forward has affirmed that his move to the Parc des Princes is just days away from completion as the Paris giants continue to strengthen their squad

Napoli forward Ezequiel Lavezzi has confirmed that his proposed move to French side Paris Saint-Germain is a "mere formality" following a bidding war for the Argentine.

Les Parisiens have beaten off the likes of Inter and Anzhi to sign the 27-year-old, and he confirmed the €26 million move is to be completed within days.

“When do I sign [for PSG]? I do not know. There is nothing scheduled, but it is a mere formality,” the Argentina forward told

There are reports that the Rosario-born attacker, who played 188 competitive games for Napoli over five years scoring 48 goals, could touch down in Paris later on Monday for his medical.
