Palermo Vice-President Guglielmo Miccichè expects Javier Pastore to still be at the club next season.
"I think it would be good for him to stay here with us and I believe he will," the official told Telecolor.
"In my opinion, it will be extremely difficult to find a club which is willing to spend the kind of money that the President wants for Pastore."
Stadio Barbera chief Maurizio Zamparini is hoping to get offers for around €50m for the Argentine playmaker.
Milan and Juventus have been linked with his services in Italy, but clubs such as Barcelona and Chelsea have been paired too.
