The past season they were supposed to play a promotion play-off but were denied after got suspended for financial irregularities and later even relegated to Serie D. That meant that all of their players were free to go anywhere so Palermo won’t even get a cent for Nestorovski’s transfer.
The 29-year-old striker singed on 3 years with the Bianconeri with an option for an additional season in both sides are content. He will continue to have hisfavorite number 30 on the back.
With him at Udinese, Macedonia now has three Serie A players as Goran Pandev is still at Genoa while Elis Elmas few days ago signed for Napoli. His former Palermo teammate Aleksandar Trajkovski is also searching for a new club. At the end he may also end up in Italy’s top flight as rumors transfer him at Lecce, Bologna and Verona.
