Flamengo confirms meeting representatives of PSG forward Ezequiel Lavezzi
With a contact at Paris Saint-Germain until the middle of 2016, Argentine forward Ezequiel Lavezzi was subject to interest from Brasileirão side Flamengo.
The executive director of Flamengo, Rodrigo Caetano, has confirmed that there was a conversation with the representatives of Lavezzi three weeks ago, when he heard about the player's interest in defending the Carioca club one day. Rodrigo, however, ensures that a positive outcome in the negotiations is far. He told SporTV: "It is true that there was a meeting. But a meeting mainly because there were talks about the possibility of his return to South American football. According to his representatives, Flamengo are among the clubs he pictures himself playing one day. But then, there's a very long way to go for this to become viable."
He added: "With him, I didn't talk personally. It's still something quite distant. Besides the financial factor is the fact that he still has much market inside Europe. There's Barcelona, and Juventus...I believe it is very difficult. It was just a meeting."
