Palermo president Zamparini says Pastore saga about to be over

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini says the Javier Pastore transfer saga is due to soon end.

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini says the Javier Pastore transfer saga is due to soon end.

The midfielder’s agent is also in talks with a number of outfits regarding a potential transfer this summer.

“I think that the situation will be resolved in about 10 to 15 days time,” President Maurizio Zamparini told GR Parlamento.

“He’ll either move before the Copa America ends or he will stay here and continue to play for us,” added the Stadio Barbera chief.

When asked whether the player was likely to be sold or not, Zamparini seemed to open the exit door.

“I think there is a 90 per cent chance that he will leave because that is the player’s desire when you consider the clubs who want him.

"Pastore will go to England or Spain, but I'd exclude Barcelona, because they already have Andres Iniesta and Xavi in that position."
