Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini Confirms Mauricio Pinilla Purchase

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has confirmed Grosseto striker Mauricio Pinilla will be joining the Rosaneri.

Zamparini revealed that all parties had reached an agreement over the forward.

"We have reached an agreement [for Pinilla]," Zamparini told Sky Sport 24. "The club had been following the player for quite some time. Palermo have finally been able to purchase the player's contract.

"Our transfer season does not end there though, as we are also following three or four other players. [Siena's Massimo] Maccarone could be one of those.

"What acts against Maccarone is his age, as he is not young anymore. I am hoping that one of those 3-4 objectives can be met."

The president then closed the door on Amauri's possible return.

"It seems impossible, especially regarding his wage and his motivation. It is one thing to go from Palermo to Juventus, but another to go from Juventus to Palermo," added Zamparini.

Pinilla will join the Rosanero on a four-year contract worth €6 million. The Chilean scored 24 goals in as many games this season for Grosseto in Serie B.
