AC Milan have made a sensational move for Palermo star Javier Pastore.

After the midfielder declared an ambition to pull on the Rossoneri shirt this week, it's emerged the two parties have been talking.

SportItalia says Pastore's agent, Marcelo Simonian, has met with Milan transfers chief Ariedo Braida this week.

It was an exploratory meeting, with no offer being made by Braida - but he left the summit well aware of what it would cost Milan to sign Pastore in the coming weeks.
