Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly agreed terms with Federico Balzaretti – now Palermo have to decide whether to sell in January or June.
The Italian international is keen to move to the French capital seeing as his girlfriend works for a ballet company in the city.
According to a report in Le Parisien, Paris SG director Leonardo has wrapped up a deal with the player, but Palermo will make the final decision on when he moves.
Rosanero President Maurizio Zamparini admitted earlier this year that he was ready to sell Balzaretti at the end of the season, but was reluctant to do so in January.
PSG, though, have the finances to possibly make Zamparini a Christmas offer that he would find hard to refuse.
Zampa has already done business with the Ligue 1 outfit when he sold Javier Pastore and Salvatore Sirigu to them in the summer.
