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.
