Federico Balzaretti

Previously with Torino, Juventus and Fiorentina, this left-back relishes the chance to burst forward and support his side’s attacking ambitions.


After playing in four Euro 2012 qualifiers, he earned his right to take a place in the final 23-man Azzurri squad for this competition and the woes affecting Domenico Criscito means a slot may well have opened up for Balzaretti to take a prominent role in Cesare Prandelli’s team this summer.


The current Italy boss handed Balzaretti his senior Italy debut back in 2010 and he had been widely expected to join Paris Saint Germain this summer, with his wife already working in the French capital. However, it seems Palermo are determined to keep him after all.
