Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has blasted the agent of Javier Pastore over his move to PSG.

Zamparini is reportedly taking Pastore's agent, Marcelo Simonian, to court for 'extortion' in the negotiations.

"I don't want to talk too much about this affair and in fact I'm surprised it came out in the open," Zamparini told Telecolor.

"Put simply, we can sum up the situation as 'if you don't give me this, then I won't sign.' I was hoping to keep it quiet, because in the football world there tends to be chaos."
