Boca's Martin Palermo Still on Target; Linked to MLS

MOST COMMENTED

SI.com interviews Martin Palermo, who at 35 continues to be one of the most prolific strikers in South America. With 201 goals to his name, Palermo holds the record for the most career goals of Boca's professional era. Since returning from injury layoff in February, Palermo has been in sizzling form, earning his first call-up to the national team in 10 years. Although Palermo hopes to end his career at Boca, he hasn't ruled out a long-rumored move to Major League Soccer, where he could team up with former Boca teammate Guillermo Barros Schelotto with the Columbus Crew.

Palermo on revitalizing his national team career: "I always had hope, but obviously each time I thought it was more difficult. But I never lost any hope. [Former Argentina coach] Alfio Basile had thought about calling me, but I got injured, and now the call-up from [Coach Diego] Maradona fills me with pride."

Palermo on the rumors of his move to the MLS: "It is something I always speak about with my agent [Gustavo Goni, the same person who negotiated Schelotto's move to Columbus] because there are always rumors. But right now I'm only thinking about what will happen at Boca."
