Foreign club makes €50m Pastore bid

Palermo have confirmed that they have received a €50m offer for Argentine star Javier Pastore.

"There is only a 10 per cent chance that he will stay with us," President Maurizio Zamparini noted today.

"At the moment he is in Argentina preparing for the Copa America and his agent is evaluating three or four offers – but none from Italian sides.

"It's exactly what is occurring at Udinese with Alexis Sanchez.

"I can also confirm that a foreign club made me a €50m offer yesterday. What nationality were they? Icelandic…

"There were Italian sides who wanted him, but you'll have to ask them if they are still interested.

"The player himself has no preference over his next destination. At the moment he is calmly just waiting for us to give him news."

The Rosanero's valuation of the South American would seem to suggest interest from sides such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City and Chelsea.

"Pastore is worth more than €50m and in two or three years' time his price will double," added Zamparini.

"Is he better than Ganso of Santos? I don't know him very well, but Pastore is worth three or four times more than him."
