PSG to ‘Steal’ Palermo’s Sirigu From Genoa?

Genoa’s interest on Palermo’s keeper, Salvatore Sirigu, might not materialized at all after latest reports from Italy suggested that newly rich French outfit, Paris Saint-Germain, have already made an interesting offer for the Italian international keeper.

Reports from TMW claimed that PSG sent a 3,5 million Euro offer for Sirigu to the Sicilian and ready to give the keeper a four year deal, worth about 1,5 million Euro per-season.
The French team’s offer is definitely an interesting proposal that would attract Palermo and also the player, and with former Ac Milan director, Leonardo, being the man behind PSG’s transfer move, things might get easier for them. The Ligue 1 team previously have already snapped Jeremy Menez from As Roma and reportedly also eying several other Serie A based players such as Mommo Sissoko from Juventus along with another Palermo player, Javier Pastore.
Considering the fact that Sirigu’s contract will end in 2012 and he haven’t agree to extend with the Sicilian, the probability of Palermo accepting PSG’s offer is very big as their owner, Mauro Zamparini would probably opted to sell his players abroad anyway. The next question would now rely on the young keeper himself as whether he still wants to play in Serie A or not, should he decide to stick around in the league than Genoa might have another shot but if his convinced with Leonardo’s project then Ligue 1 seems to be the Italian international destination.

Sirigu, who has been considered as one of the most talented young keeper in Serie A, suddenly becomes available in this summer transfer market after the goalie refused Palermo’s extension as both parties failed to agree on the wages numbers. The young keeper only netted around 250,000 Euro per-year at the moment and was asking for massive improvement should the Sicilian wants to renew the deal, however, the player reportedly asking more than what Palermo is willing to offer, hence making him a market prospect this summer.
