Manchester United are planning a summer move for highly rated Palermo star Javier Pastore. The Argentine youngster has been in sparkling form in Serie A this season and has been earmarked as a player that Sir Alex Ferguson wishes to bring to Old Trafford as the Scot looks to continue building for the future.
The 21 year old adaptable attacking midfielder made it into the Argentine 2010 World Cup squad but was used sparingly and is considered one of the hottest prospects in Europe. The well built flair player has plenty of strength and could well suit a move to the Premier League and interest has also been shown by Chelsea and Real Madrid.
Sir Alex Ferguson is said to have considered a move for Pastore when he was at Huracan but opted against it as the Cordoba born youngster had no experience of playing outside but now that he has proven himself in Italy, where he helped Palermo to a respectable fifth place finish in his first season, a move to Man United appears to be back on.
A move for Pastore would be fairly costly and some sources have stated his value at anywhere between £20-25m a fee that Ferguson believes is worthy given the player’s obvious potential.
