‘Manchester United bid €40M for Palermo playmaker Javier Pastore’

Javier PastoreManchester United have made a €40 million bid for Palermo playmaker Javier Pastore , according to Italian sources.

But even that might not be enough to land the 21-year-old Argentine, as Palermo  President Maurizio Zamparini has slapped a €70 million price tag on his head.

Although Palermo’s season has begun to falter in recent weeks, a slide which cost coach Delio Rossi his job, Pastore has been an undoubted star.

He has scored 11 goals and set up five, and boasts a league efficiency ratio of a goal or assist every 161.4 minutes for the side lying eighth in Serie A.

Pastore is contracted to Palermo until 2014 and is valued at €20M-30M.
