“Real Madrid & Chelsea Lead The Race For His Services”
Outspoken Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has said Real Madrid and Chelsea are leading the race to sign the highly rated Javier Pastore.
The 21-year old has been heavily linked with the pair, but the president was quick to dismiss Napoli’s chances of signing the gifted Argentine.
“At the moment it looks as if Pastore will move abroad. Real Madrid and Chelsea lead the race for his services. There is not much news as the same clubs still want him,” Zamparini he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Napoli have not made a fresh approach for him. Those quotes are outdated. They’re from a meeting several weeks ago. [Napoli president Aurelio] De Laurentiis sat next to me and asked whether we could talk about Pastore. I said ‘no’ and haven’t heard from him since.”
