Palermo Confirm Simon Kjaer & Edinson Cavani Will Be Sold For Big Money

Zamparini says top offers will force him to sell...
Palermo chief Maurizio Zamparini is bracing himself for Simon Kjaer's and Edinson Cavani's departures, admitting the club cannot refuse big offers for both men.

"There have been a couple of imporant offers for Kjaer and we are discussing them. I will speak to the player. Kjaer's value is between €15 and 20 million," he told GR Parlamento.

Zamparini gave a rough indication of where the Danish international may head next.

"I know there have been talks with Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham and Wolfsburg, but I don't know about Inter. I have not spoken with them.

"I think that both Cavani and Kjaer will end up leaving.

"Cavani wants to be sold, he wants another club and so we will not stop him."

Zamparini then confirmed he rejected a big offer from Real Madrid for Javier Pastore.

"Real had made a €25m offer, but I rejected it. I hope Pastore can stay with us for at least two more years," he added.

"In future it will be hard to keep him at Palermo. But for now he is not for sale at any price."

The chief's words are likely to come as a surprise to Kjaer, who on Monday said he wanted to stay at Palermo.
