Pirlo, Pastore and Aguero for Juve

Juventus will have the funds to launch bids for Javier Pastore and Sergio Aguero this summer, reports claim.

The Italian media are suggesting that Juve's parent company Exor will pump between €100m and €200m into the outfit before the start of next season.

Although the club have made no official announcement regarding how much cash will be injected into the side, that hasn't stopped media sources speculating on targets.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport on Thursday, Juventus will strengthen the side by firstly picking up Andrea Pirlo.

Although he will allegedly be netted on a free transfer given that his Milan contract expires next month, he will demand wages in excess of €3m a campaign.

Juventus will also apparently make Palermo an offer for playmaker Pastore, a midfielder who has won comparisons with Michel Platini and Zinedine Zidane in the past.

The Argentine is highly rated across Europe and Rosanero chief Maurizio Zamparini has valued him at €60m this term.

Meanwhile, it is also being claimed that Aguero of Atletico Madrid will be targeted by director general Beppe Marotta.

However, the Argentine striker did recently again commit his future to his present club.
