Chelsea, Liverpool and United 'will bid' for £44m Argentine superstar

Palermo expect Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United to bid for their star turn Javier Pastore this summer, according to the Metro.

The 21-year-old has been subject to interest from the Premier League trio as well as Real Madrid and Barcelona and with the Italian side consigned to losing the forward are open to bids from Europe's elite.

Chelsea are considering re-jigging their forward line with Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka close to reaching the twilight of their careers.

Despite Chelsea being consistent contenders for the Barclays Premier League title, having won the league in three of the past five years, it's the north-west duo of Liverpool and United that Pastore reportedly prefers.


Rivals Liverpool will undergo further re-building this summer after the double January transfer window swoop of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez, while United, who are planning a huge spending spree this summer have long been admirers of the Argentine international.

Kenny Dalglish, yet to be offered a permanent deal at Anfield, is expected to be given significant funds this summer to build a squad that can qualify for the Champions League again, a tournament Liverpool haven't participated in since they were dumped out of the group stage in 2009.

Another club expecting to be competing for his signature are Manchester City, but a condition on Pastore joining Eastlands, in a deal that would be worth in excess of £40m, would on City qualifying for the Champions League, something rival suitors Chelsea and United could guarantee.
