Palermo president Zamparini: Pastore could join Chelsea

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini admits Chelsea could buy star midfielder Javier Pastore. He told Radio Kiss Kiss that Pastore, who he has valued at €50m, is unlikely to remain in Serie A for another season.

"Pastore is absolutely a top player and there are three or four clubs tracking him. His agent is waiting calmly. With the money he's worth, obviously those clubs have certain resources at their disposal.

"Chelsea are among them, but we have to see what their new Coach Andre Villas-Boas has to say. The same goes for Juventus, as the directors love Pastore, but Antonio Conte is less interested considering his tactics.

"Napoli have already called me about Pastore and I expect a new call. I would like him to stay in Italy, but I think that's unlikely.

"At the moment I am in England, but not to sell Pastore."
