Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has revealed Chelsea have made an offer for Javier Pastore.

The Mirror says Zamparini claims Chelsea have made a £45million bid for Argentine playmaker Javier Pastore.

"Pastore is a phenomenal player and there are three or four clubs interested in him," said Zamparini. "I am a businessman and I will not lose my cool, but it is clear that clubs who want Pastore must have the economic power to submit a proposal.

"Chelsea are one of the clubs concerned, but we have to wait to see what Villas-Boas, the new coach, decides. The same goes for Juventus, although they are less interested than the English.

"Napoli have also called me to ask for Pastore. I would love him to stay in Italy, but it is very unlikely."
