Genoa reveal Criscito fee

Genoa chief Enrico Preziosi has revealed how much Domenico Criscito was sold to Zenit for, while he's made it clear that Rodrigo Palacio can leave too.

Criscito completed his switch to Russia today after the player failed to agree personal terms with Napoli.

"Criscito wanted to join Napoli, he really wanted to, but then there are economical aspects to take into consideration," Preziosi told Radio CRC.

"The boy wanted to leave and we decided to make him happy. We sold him to Zenit for €11m in the end."

Criscito could soon be followed out of the club by Argentine striker Palacio, a player who Inter are very keen on.

"Palacio is an important man for us," Preziosi continued. "However, every player has his price at Genoa."

The former Boca Juniors forward has also been linked with Napoli.
