Fabrizio Miccoli says he’d like to end his career at Palermo, but refused to rule out the possibility of a summer exit.
The Rosanero captain is only tied to the outfit until June and talks regarding a renewal have been placed on hold.
“I don’t know if I will stay here for life,” the former Italian international told Rai Sport. “My contract expires in June and I’ll definitely be here until then.
“But anything could happen – I could extend and remain here or it could end up that I move on to another club.
“With great calm, I’ll talk with the club and we’ll find a solution that is the best for everyone involved.
“The club have made it clear that they want me to stay, so I’m optimistic that I will be able to end my playing days at this club.
“For now though, the most important thing is to think about getting Palermo out of this difficult decision which we are in.”
The 33-year-old, five goals in 12 games this term, joined Palermo in 2007 after two seasons with Benfica.
