The arrival of former Ac Milan and Inter Milan‘s tactician, Leonardo, at Paris Saint-Germain, opens the door for Serie A based players to the French outfit and after Salvatore Sirigu and Javier Pastore, another talent reportedly is set to follow.
According to Italian media, the player that will soon join the two former Palermo stars in Paris, is Federico Balzaretti, who is also a Rossonaro and Italian national team left winger.
The latest information claimed that the personal negotiation between PSG and Balzaretti has already reached its conclusion and the player is pretty much set to join the Ligue 1 outfit. However, there’s still some decision that needs to be made by Palermo, on whether they would let the Italian international left immediately in January or keep the wing back until June next summer.
Palermo president’s, Maurizio Zamparini, previously stated that he is ready to release Balzaretti but maybe not in January, since the left back’s contribution is still very much needed by Palermo. However, the strong financial power that PSG had might change the controversial patron’s mind, just like what he did for Pastore and also Sirigu this summer.
Being considered as one of the current best Italian left back, Balzaretti’s addition to PSG would definitely be a big boost for the French outfit, who have a strong ambition on becoming a very successful club with the super funding they had from new Qatari investors. The quality of the Italian international is also being appreciated by many big clubs as this summer, Ac Milan are one of the teams that are seriously interested in purchasing the player.
