Chelsea target held to transfer ransom by President

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has effectively moved to hold Chelsea target Javier Pastore to a high ransom, telling the English giants that he will not be selling the star.

"Palermo is no-one's supermarket,’ Zamparini said.

“I have already said Pastore wouldn't go to Chelsea, let alone Roma.


Chelsea have often been linked to Pastore, with reporting that Chelsea were preparing a £30 million deal for the star.

But Zamparini is so far hearing none of Chelsea’s pleas to take the 21 year to England.

"I will keep all my important players like Pastore and [Josip] Ilicic, and I will bring in some quality players to strengthen the squad,” the President said.

But Chelsea are reportedly not perturbed by Zamparini’s comments, and are hoping that a mere raise in their buying price will be too tempting for Palermo to say no to.
