Pioli doesn't have Pastore answer

Palermo boss Stefano Pioli insists he doesn't know whether Javier Pastore will stay or go this summer.

The Argentine is available for transfer, but it remains to be seen whether anyone will pay the €50m which have been asked for him.

"There is still no certainty with regard to Pastore," the new Coach noted. "I don't know if I'll have to design a side with or without him.

"At the moment he is our player and he is resting after the Copa America. It will then be up to the club and his agent to decide on what to do.

"We'll just have to wait and see."

The South American midfielder, 22, is being linked with moves to clubs such as Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea.

Italian clubs are keen but not at the price being requested.
