De Melo delighted with Palermo deal

Le Mans striker Tulio de Melo is delighted with his Bosman agreement with Palermo.

"I will definitely be going to Palermo," the Brazilian told L'Equipe. "Parma's directors have agreed to a co-ownership deal.

"Money isn't something that I am obsessed with, otherwise I would have chosen to go to Russia before I chose Le Mans.

"It's true that I will be earning five times my current salary with Palermo, but that isn't a priority - I just want to do well and impress."
