Juventus put together Pastore deal

Juventus are planning a complicated €40m bid for Palermo starlet Javier Pastore this summer, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.

Already this year, Juventus general manager Beppe Marotta has said that Palermo is a "very expensive shop" thereby intimating that a deal for Pastore would be beyond the club.

However, Il Corriere claims that Juventus will try to reduce the player's price by offering several players either in exchange, on loan or in part-ownership.

The report suggests that Juventus will offer €20m in cash plus Amauri, Sebastian Giovinco and Raffaelle Palladino in a colossal deal.

Juventus apparently feel Pastore is the player capable of bringing the glory days back to the club after the dark days of Calciopoli.
