CONFIRMED: Chelsea Submit Bid For South American Star
Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has confirmed Chelsea have made a major offer for star midfielder Javier Pastore. Zamparini has confirmed that Chelsea have made a bid for the 21-year old, but still falls short of their valuation, he said:
“Chelsea was a club that we had a major offer from.
“But it did not reach the minimum figure that we set for a player of his quality.
“If someone wants to buy Pastore, the price is 50m (£44m).
“There are five or six clubs also interested, including Manchester City and big clubs from Spain and Italy but so far there has been nothing from them.”
The talented midfielder was brought for a fee around £8million back in 2009 from Argentine outfit Huracán, but after another impressive season in Serie A his value has rocketed to over £40million.
