No Pastore interest from trio

Javier Pastore's agent has revealed that he's not held talks with Milan, Inter or Chelsea regarding the Palermo ace.

The Argentine is available for sale this summer, with reports that the aforementioned clubs were all interested in his services.

"President Maurizio Zamparini wants €50m for him and that is a price that I totally agree with," agent Marcelo Simonian told FCInterNews.it.

"Both the President and myself know about the potential of Pastore and what he can do in the future.

"However, to end the rumours, I can confirm that I have had absolutely no contact with Inter, Milan or Chelsea."

Clubs such as Malaga, Manchester City and Real Madrid have also been paired with the South American, but a summer switch is not inevitable.

"We are in no rush to make a decision," the representative added. "Javier is in no hurry to leave and he'd be happy to spend another campaign at Palermo."

The player himself yesterday suggested that he'd like to play on in Italy if he left the Rosanero this summer.

Roma have been paired given the presence of sporting director Walter Sabatini, but he may prove too pricey for the Giallorossi.
