Pastore transfer is possible

Javier Pastore's agent has refused to rule out a summer move away from Palermo. "Every player has his price."

The Sicilian club intend to keep the Argentine and today ruled out any concrete interest in the midfielder.

However, the South American's representative has told TMW that a transfer is within the realms of reality.

When asked: "Can you say that you are 100 per cent sure that Pastore will stay at Palermo?" Marcelo Simonian said: "No."

The representative added: "Every player in the world has his price."

Pastore has been tentatively linked with Milan, Inter, Juventus and Roma, as well as foreign clubs such as Real Madrid and Barcelona.

The youngster has played in 34 Serie A games this season, scoring an impressive 11 goals in the process.

"He was struggling for two months as he was playing with fitness issues, but he's in good shape now and is back at his levels," Simonian added.

Palermo believe Pastore is worth in excess of €40m on the transfer market.
