Decision time is soon to be upon Amauri

For many players, this time of year increasingly signifies uncertainty, with the ending of loan deals and the natural transfers that emanate from the dealings of co-ownership agreements. This uncertainty is evident in the case of Amauri, a man who not long ago was in the middle of a nationality crisis between his natural homeland of Brazil and his adopted homeland of Italy.
At this moment, such thoughts of being selected for Italy are no longer being entertained as Amauri is now in a crucial phase of his career. Fresh off the back of an impressive six month spell at Parma, Amauri represents an enigma in the transfer market. The chances of a return to wearing the colours of the Old Lady seem virtually non-existent and so a move is expected, but genuine suitors appear few-and-far-between.
There has been much tentative interest in the Brazilian-born striker, but his wage seems a huge obstacle to overcome in negotiations – so much so that a lot of clubs have been put off before such negotiations were to arise. Parma’s signing of two strikers in the form of Fabio Borini and Graziano Pellè have surely put to bed any interest that the Ducali would have in bringing Amauri back to Stadio Ennio Tardini.
A plethora of options are abroad for Amauri but at the age of 31, a move outside of Italy could derail his bid to return to former glories (for an example of this observe Luca Toni, who has never regained the form he showed before moving to Bayern). Zenit St. Petersburg has been mentioned but any unsettled Italian player of even moderate repute seems to be mentioned in connection to the Russian giants thanks to the presence of Luciano Spalletti at the club’s helm. More likely and more interesting options for his next destination lie closer to home.
Bologna and Genoa have been mentioned as potential suitors and both would certainly interest Amauri should he be intrigued by enigmatic projects. A recent rumour rumour has been Amauri to Genoa as the club look to replace a possibly Inter-bound Rodrigo Palacio. Given the wholesale squad changes that Genoa has employed over the past few seasons, such a move would not be a huge surprise but at this important moment in his career, the likelihood of instability may detract Amauri from joining il Grifone.
There is one club that has been mentioned that may have Amauri thinking more than others. He would have to be willing to take a significant pay cut according to the club’s President Maurizio Zamparini but Palermo is where Amauri impressed most, or at least enough to be mentioned as having his pick of national team to represent. The Rosanero managed a respectable 8th place finish last season without a real focal point up front and when on form and fit, Amauri would be of great use to a team that will have set designs on Europa League qualification at minimum. The Palermo faithful have seen Amauri’s best days in Serie A. Who is to say there will not be more to follow? Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
