Palermo claim Pastore worth €100m

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has revealed that the club have upped the release clause in Javier Pastore's contract to €100 million.

Pastore, 21, was recently named Serie A's Young Player of the Year for 2010 and has emerged as one of Europe's hottest prospects over the past 12 months, with the likes of Real Madrid, AC Milan and Manchester United all rumoured to be monitoring him.

But those European giants will now need to be prepared to fork out a massve €100 million for the Argentina starlet, after Zamparini revealed that Palermo increased their minimum asking price following Pastore's superb display in his side's 2-1 victory over Juventus on Wednesday.

"This evening, Pastore's agent was here," Zampirini said. "We have raised his release clause to €100m at his suggestion.

"I believe that Pastore and Josip Ilicic could play as regulars for top clubs in Europe despite being young."

Pastore starred against Juve, dictating the tempo of the game and creating Palermo's opener for Fabrizio Miccoli, and the Argentina playmaker has continued to attract envious glances from across the continent.

Zamparini also claimed that he received a call from Manchester City on deadline day to enquire about Pastore, though the approach was rejected out of hand.
