Palermo star to join PSG

The 29-year-old has impressed for Palermo in the Serie A over the past couple of seasons and now new PSG general manager Leonardo is keen to bring him to France.

“Federico asked me to be sold to PSG and I’m going to oblige him,” Zamparini told RMC.

“Leonardo has already asked for him for some time but I told him that until the end of the season Balzaretti will remain with us.

“Meanwhile, we are already looking for his replacement.”
