The transfer of Pastore permitted Palermo to gain an high amount and to maintain Ilicic as strong element of the team.

The following year, Ilicic played in a terrible way. At this point, the president Zamparini tried to transfer Ilicic, but noone was interested anymore. In fact, the president tried to propose Ilicic to AC Milan, Juventus and Inter Milan for circa 15 million euros, but he remained in Palermo.
