AC Milan can't afford €50 million Javier Pastore - Palermo's Maurizio Zamparini

Zamparini reiterates playmaker Pastore's high price-tag and claims the Rossoneri would struggle to match his expectations if transfer talk turned into real business

Javier Pastore's Palermo future is not under threat from AC Milan as Sicilian club chief Maurizio Zamparini doesn't believe Silvio Berlusconi will cover a €50 million transfer.

And there's a clear suggestion 'Zampa' has changed stance on the 21-year-old Argentina ace  just 24 hours after he said his man was free to leave.

"Pastore to Milan? With Berlusconi it's impossible, especially now he has other pastimes," he told Radio 2.

"To get him [Pastore] they need €50m plus, but I have decided he will stay at Palermo for another year.

"Berlusconi will never pay that money for him."

Meanwhile, Spanish publication Sport.es is reporting Barcelona and Real Madrid will scrap for 'El Flaco' during the summer market.

It claims Palermo would accept an invite to hold talks starting off at €30m - less than what Zamparini expects.

Palermo entertain Roma as they aim for a Europa League place. However, they are eighth in Serie A, seven points behind Juventus.
