Official: Palermo sign Cassini

Palermo have officially signed Corinthians striker Matheus Cassini. “I am happy to be here. My reference point is Cristiano Ronaldo.”

The 19-year-old completed the transfer today and put pen to paper on a five-year contract.

“I am happy to be here and thank the club for this unique opportunity,” the Brazilian told the official Palermo website.

“I can grow as a man and as a player at Palermo. I know Paulo Dybala and respect what he did here, but I hope the fans think of me as Cassini and not as just the heir to Dybala.

“My reference point is Cristiano Ronaldo. I will give everything to repay the club’s faith in me.”

The Rosanero are also in advanced negotiations with Boca Juniors for €8m rated forward Jonathan Calleri.
