Zampa pushes Pastore to Napoli

Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini has invited Napoli to make an offer for Javier Pastore. “Naples is 10,000 times better than Milan.”

The Partenopei have shown interest in Pastore before, but Marek Hamsik's links with Milan suggest that could intensify.

“I am waiting for a big offer from Pastore, just like Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis is waiting for an ‘indecent proposal' for Hamsik,” noted Zamparini on Radio Kiss Kiss.

“Javier is expensive and has different characteristics to Hamsik, but if De Laurentiis wants him, then I'm here. I think Hamsik wants to leave because he's after a wage increase.

“I don't think Milan will pay out for Hamsik, as they don't have much money. Besides, Naples is 10,000 times better than Milan, both in terms of the cities and the clubs.”

Last week the Palermo patron said he had a deal for Ricky Alvarez, but hesitated before the bidding war broke out between Roma, Arsenal and Inter.

“I had already reached an agreement with Velez Sarsfield for €6m in January, but the player has chosen Arsenal now.”
