The Argentina midfielder has made no secret of his ambition to join Barcelona once he decides to leave Sicily.
However, Gazzetta dello Sport says Chelsea haven't given up on bringing Pastore to London.
Aware of the growing interest in his star man, Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini wants to renegotiate Pastore's current deal to include a €70 million buyout clause.
"The future? In the future there may be Barca, but now I do not want money but the Champions League," insisted Pastore last night.
