Having joked that the clubs interested in Javier Pastore came from Iceland, Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has admitted both Chelsea and Juventus are two of the four who have made a move to sign his player.
Pastore is sure to leave Palermo this summer, with the Argentina playmaker rated at €50 million, and although Zamparini is loathe to lose his best player, he admits that his hand will be forced when his value is reached.
"Pastore is a phenomenal player and there are three or four clubs interested in him," said Zamparini. "I am a businessman and I will not lose my cool, but it is clear that clubs who want Pastore must have the economic power to submit a proposal.
"Chelsea are one of the clubs concerned, but we have to wait to see what Villas-Boas, the new coach, decides. The same goes for Juventus, although they are less interested than the English.
"Napoli have also called me to ask for Pastore. I would love him to stay in Italy, but it is very unlikely."
