Pastore could be leaving Palermo

Highliy rated Argentinian and Palermo midfielder Javier Pastore could be leaving Palermo for a bigger club. The rumours come about after Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini suggested that a bid in excess of 50 million euros had been proposed by another club. Although the club is unknown at the moment, speculation has been surrounding Chelsea, Roma and Real Madrid.

Earlier in the year it was reported that Roma would offer 25 million euros plus three players. However Palermo would not relinquish their player as they believed that they could get a cash only deal for their man.

The 50 million dollar tag is a big step down from the 80 million wanted last campaign. Although less spectacular performances from the talented midfielder have contributed to a more realistic price tag. Pastore has proved to be a useful player at the Sicilian club. this campaign he scored 11 goals in 24 games.

He is currently on duty with Argentina in the Copa America, but has not made an appearance yet.
