Chelsea offered Javier Pastore in £25m deal

Published Add your comment

Chelsea will be offered Argentina playmaker Javier Pastore in a £25m deal by Paris Saint-Germain if they can beat Manchester United to the blockbuster signing of his compatriot Angel di Maria in the next two weeks, according to the Express.

Pastore has failed to convince PSG boss Laurent Blanc that he deserves star billing at the Parc des Princes, which means if they can find a buyer the attacking midfielder will be moving on to make way for Di Maria.

Chelsea have a strong relationship with PSG after agreeing to sell David Luiz to the Ligue 1 champions for an eye-watering £50m earlier this summer, a fact the French giants are hoping to use to their advantage in new negotiations over a sidelined star.

Pastore to pastures new?

PSG are very confident they can wrap up a £47m deal to sign Di Maria from Real Madrid once his commitments at the World Cup are complete, although the terrific midfielder is also new Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal's top summer transfer target.

That transfer tussle will also decide the future of a host of stars facing uncertain futures or looking for big-money moves, including Arturo Vidal, James Rodriguez and Pastore.

The 25-year-old is a hugely talented and versatile attacking option, but there is no question that he has failed to match that potential to consistent performances over the last 18 months.

First option

Chelsea have a whole host of options in Pastore's position and that makes a move for the attacking midfielder look unlikely, although Blues boss Jose Mourinho is building a squad capable of fighting on all fronts next season and may decide more added quality will aid that pursuit.

Mourinho will have first refusal on Pastore, who looks a more realistic addition than spending all summer chasing a £60m move for Juventus midfield marvel Paul Pogba.
