Rumour: Chelsea move for Javier Pastore from PSG


Javier Pastore, 26, is set for a summer move to Chelsea according to reports, having been strongly linked all season.

Pastore has fallen out of favor at PSG in recent weeks, having endured a disappointing time since his £30 million move from Italian side Palermo in 2011.

It is understood that incoming Chelsea Boss Antonio Conte has identified Pastore as the man to relight the Blues misfiring attack next season. Particularly if Chelsea cash in on Diego Costa, who is set to leave the club.

The Argentinian attacking midfielder is not short of options however, as Manchester City have also expressed an interest in the player. They see Pastore as an ideal signing to take some of the goal scoring burden off Sergio Aguero.

PSG would prefer to keep Pastore, but would be willing to make a deal on offers over £30 million. It remains to be seen if Chelsea or any other club is prepared to meet that price tag.
