Palermo are ready to sell Matias Silvestre to Inter Milan in a deal believed to be worth around 10 million euros.
The Sicilian outfit’s president Maurizio Zamparini said negotiations with Inter
are in the final stages and a deal could be struck soon.
Silvestre, 27, already announced his intention to leave Palermo after just one
season and has been linked with both Inter and AC Milan.
Andrea Stramaccioni’s outfit had originally offered seven million euros for the
defender, who also holds an Italian passport, but have now upped their bid in
order to ward off competition from their city rivals.
“I met with Inter president Massimo Moratti. We spoke about Silvestre and
we are on the same page,” Zamparini told Radio Radio.”There is a 99 percent chance that a deal will be done. It will be a
transfer worth around eight million euros to 10 million euros.”
Silvestre moved to Italy from Boca Juniors in 2008 and spent three seasons at
Catania before making the switch to Palermo.
The defender, who has a contract with Palermo until 2015, scored five goals in
29 league appearances last season.
