Italian international Federico Balzaretti has revealed that he plans to continue his career either at Palermo or Paris Saint-Germain.
The French giants tried to sign the full-back in January, but even though the transfer fell through, the player expressed his desire to join the Saints in the summer.
Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini admitted he was willing to grant the player’s wish, but it appears Balzaretti is now having second thoughts about a move to PSG.
The highly rated defender was linked with a number of high-profile sides after impressing at the European Championship, but he is adamant he will choose between just two options.
“I’ve already spoken to the president and told him of my priorities,” Balzaretti told Il Corriere dello Sport.
“I’ll either stay at Palermo or move to Paris Saint-Germain – there are no other solutions.”
The 30-year-old joined Italy’s Euro 2012 squad as a back-up player, but was then given a chance by Cesare Prandelli and he largely impressed every time he was on the pitch.
Balzaretti made four appearances at the European Championship, starting three games and replacing Giorgio Chiellini in the 4-0 defeat to Spain in the final.
