Palermo favourites to land Real Madrid midfielder

Palermo are close to concluding a deal for Real Madrid midfielder Fernando Gago, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport.
In recent weeks the Sicilian club have lost stars of previous seasons in the form of Javier Pastore, Salvatore Sirigu, and Cesare Bovo, and club president Maurizio Zamparini sees Gago, 25, as the ideal big name signing to rejuvenate his side, in a deal that would see the Argentina international earn around 3m Euros per year.
Roma had previously been close to a deal for the Madrid man, before Palermo took pole position in the last couple of days, yet the Giallorossi will remain interested until the deal is done.
The former Boca Juniors player has failed to establish himself in the first-team at Real, scoring one goal in four seasons at the Bernabeu. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
