Sannino accepts Silvestre exit

New Palermo boss Giuseppe Sannino says he has no problem with the decision to sell Matias Silvestre to Inter.

The Nerazzurri are set to officially announce the defender’s capture after a reported fee of €8.5m was agreed between the two clubs.

“Silvestre is an important player,” Sannino, who joined the Sicilians this summer from Siena, told Sport Italia.

“Palermo are a leading team, but it is only right for a club like ours to allow a player to leave when a big outfit like the Nerazzurri make an offer for him.”

Silvestre, 27, is a former Catania and Boca Juniors stopper who could officially become an Inter player on Friday.
