Chelsea close in on Pastore

Chelsea are in the market for every available midfielder it seems, and the unavailable ones, since Michael Essien was injured, and their latest target is 22-year old Argentinian Javier Pastore.

The Argentina midfielder plays for Palermo in Italy, but it is a well known fact that he wants a move to a bigger club. Guglielmo Micciche is the chief Executive at Palermo and he had the following to say about a possible move.“His agent is working well and if someone pays the right amount we are happy to let him go. Very likely he will go to Chelsea, but I think there are many other clubs of that level looking at the boy.”

Negotiations appear to be well advanced and it would take an offer of around £40million to secure his signature. Palermo want a cash only deal as Micciche ruled out a player exchange by saying. “We don’t want any players in exchange, it would be impossible because it would mean taking players of a level that Palermo could not afford.”

Other interested clubs are Liverpool and Manchester City, but if these latest reports are true Pastore will be a Chelsea player sooner rather than later.

    We chelsea fans are tired of all dis speculations,let dis one be true

  2. Mali says

    Pastore and modric can form that ‘xavi, iniesta partnership’.. As we all know pastore has got more flair and is more attacking like ‘iniesta’, while modric iz more of a game reader, he creates play with his good vision and technique more like ‘xavi’… Gues thats why ibram is pushing for chelsea 2 sign pastore, modric and lukaku… Lukaku is more like drogba, only his 18 with less experiance tho has got more skill and his kind of faster. Saw him play, his realy good i was impressed.. Atleast if u get younger players its a sure thing that as a coach u’l be given more time to work with your players…

  4. mrlarge says

    let d signing begin,bcos am tired wt empty rumurs

  5. soludo monde says

    Modric and Pastore partnership with mikel protecting the backline and lukaku, torress and malouda in advance role. Benayoun, drogba, lampard, zirkov, remires, josh could be technically employed to faulter changes if the need arises. While essien, kalou and anelka are already surplus to requirement and should be allowed to leave. Oriol should start with team B and recieve a handful peck before season ends. Kakuta, cherobal and sturridge should go on loan to prove consistency. Betrand, Van aanholt, and A cole should be given equal chances to fight for regular left back while bosingwa, feirera and ivanovic at the right back. Turnbull should go to Team B.

    Chelsea stil designing and not players are part of pre-season tour, not signing them now will lead to flop signings. AVB this is chelsea and not porto. U could b sack within half a season. A word is enough 4 d wise.

  9. Louiz' Az says

    Delay is dangerous, pls AVB just hasting up d sighnings b4 man city’ll take us unaware. Modriç, Pastoré and Lukaku will fit in, if possible add Falcao or Hulk.
