Palacio: 'I renewed Inter contract'

Rodrigo Palacio revealed he has “renewed the contract with Inter, so I have another two years left.”

The forward spoke to Radio La Red in Argentina and broke the news on his deal with the Nerazzurri, which is currently set to expire in June 2015.

“I have renewed the contract with Inter, so I have another two years left to run now. Then we’ll have to see how I am and if I’ll have the opportunity to play for Boca,” said the 32-year-old.

“Years ago Julio Falconi called and wanted me to come back to Boca, but it would’ve been impossible. I had a contract with Genoa and I couldn’t just leave.”

Palacio has scored 12 goals in 27 Serie A games this season and with this form should be in Argentina’s World Cup squad.

“To play another World Cup would be a reward for all the sacrifices I am making. Now that I am older, I can make the most of this opportunity.

“We can really do something in this World Cup, as the squad is united and with many players who can make the difference.”
