No deal for Pogba so Chelsea look to Pastore


Pastore scored against Chelsea earlier this season in the Champions League

Chelsea boss, José Mourinho is reportedly put off by the huge £60 million price tag that Juventus have put on French midfielder, Paul Pogba and is now switching attention to Paris St Germain’s, Argentine playmaker, Javier Pastore. A fee in the region of £25 million might be enough for the ex-Huracán enganche.

The Express and several UK reporters have suggested that Chelsea are ready to test Paris St Germain’s resolve and make an offer for Javier Pastore.

Although Pastore has slipped down the pecking order in Paris, he impressed against Chelsea in the Champions League and scored a wonderful individual goal in the first leg to give Paris a lead in the tie.

£25 million is the rumoured amount for Pastore which would be a loss on the near to €40 million that Paris St Germain paid to Palermo in the summer of 2011. At the time they were buying one of the top young players in Europe, the Serie A Young Player of the Year in 2010 and Palermo’s star player. Chelsea would now be buying a player who has seen his career falter a little since the transfer.

However, Pastore’s ability and potential can not be underestimated. He was outstanding in his time with Huracán and after narrowly missing out on 2009 Clausura it was no surprise that Palermo snapped up the stylish enganche.

However, having faced frustration in their pursuit of Pogba, Chelsea might also find Pastore a difficult target to land. His agent, Marcelo Simonian, denied any chance of a transfer this window. “There is no possibility that Pastore will return to Italy next season. Pastore will remain 100 per cent at Paris St Germain.

  1. Dis is a disgrace 2 football,pls can som1 xplain 2 me just wat Chelsea would b doin wit Pastore? d last thing any reasonable cauch would want is 2 add anoda inconsistent player 2 d bunch we already hav. Oscar is d most inconsistent player i have seen in my entire life,u cant say Hazard is,neither is Willian and shurlie,Ramires is nt even a footballer,a boxer mayb. Mikel? worst! Now u want 2 add Pastore at d end of d season u would b wonderin y u didnt win any trophies.

  2. Gates ur right!.Chelsea have always gone for 2nd alternatives thats why they cant posses or play good football.Ancelloti won CL last season but he’s been excellent in market.Kroos(£25m) and Rodriguez(£70m) is such a coup.Pogba is the only signing cfc can be satisfied with.Ill be gutted if we will not buy him?
