Before, his injury Palermo was on the verge of joining a big Italian club, with Lazio being the most probable.
It would be great to see him in Europe, but I understand that his club Boca Juniors have secured a 4 or 5 year contract with an annual salary of approximately $500,000/per year. Let's see if all this holds up.
I think that if Palermo, has a good year or so, some serious offers from Europe will follow, and then perhaps, he'll get transferred to a big European club.
martin palermo will see the bench at the end of the month, to get few minutes.
His trip to Europe is on hold for 3 yrs, at least. Unless he tears all the nets from game one! After that operation, his value is down to half, and the wait and see period to invest on him will be longer. Specially after knowing that he was to be ready last week! something must be wrong if they delayed full practices for him.
