The Argentine striker has endured a difficult stay with the Latics since arriving in a deal believed to be worth in excess of £6million in 2010 and is still waiting for his first Premier League goal.

The 27-year-old has been loaned out to Genoa and Estudiantes in that time and is now to return to Italy with Serie A side Palermo.

Martinez revealed that the deal had been finalised in his post-match press conference following Wigan's 1-0 win at Macclesfield in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday.

"We agreed a loan deal with Palermo and Mauro will go back to Italy where he had a spell with Genoa until the end of the season," said the Spaniard.

"That was done this morning and that is the reason why he wasn't in the squad."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
