Palermo 'turned down' star offers

Palermo have “turned down offers” for Abel Hernandez, Mauricio Pinilla and Josip Ilicic, said President Maurizio Zamparini.

The Rosanero have several players hitting the transfer market headlines, but so far refused to part with any of them.

“It's true we received proposals for Hernandez and Pinilla,” Zamparini told Radio Radio this afternoon.

“I also turned down offers for Ilicic. Federico Balzaretti? Everyone is staying.

“The only player who might be sold is Javier Pastore, as he has a 90 per cent chance of leaving this summer.

“However, if clubs come in for my players and they tell me that they want to go, then that is a different matter. We'd talk it over.”
