Pastore agent pushes Roma option

Javier Pastore's agent has hinted that a move to Roma is entirely possible. “This is an extraordinary club and very attractive.”

The Palermo playmaker is part of a bidding war in Europe after President Maurizio Zamparini confirmed a €50m price-tag.

“Pastore? Everything is possible,” agent Marcelo Simonian told

“Their new director of sport, Walter Sabatini, has an excellent rapport with all of us. If this transfer means having the money, then it's certainly possible.

“The President has set the selling price, so things are clearer now. I would see him do very well at Roma. This is an extraordinary club with an amazing city and fans, so the whole idea of joining the Giallorossi is very attractive.”

However, Simonian was quick to point out that formal negotiations with Roma have not even started.

“There have been no formal talks. Obviously I advised him to do this for the reasons you all know. Roma are Roma.

“I've known Sabatini and Franco Baldini for many years. They represent a guarantee and I'm sure everything will go well in this great project.”
