Del Neri would find space for Pastore

Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini has encouraged Juventus to make an offer for Javier Pastore by likening him to Alessandro Del Piero.

Only yesterday Juventus Coach Gigi Del Neri said he would have no problem fitting Pastore into his side.

Interviewed in Tuttosport, Zamparini said: "He is already like Del Piero.

"Originally the Juventino used to play behind the strikers before building an extraordinary career as a second striker.

"If Juve want him… the buy-out clause is €70m, a figure that suits me.

"I refused €25m from Real Madrid. Pastore would like to play with Messi, but if an offer of €100m were to arrive from Roman Abramovich, I would take it into consideration."
