Argentine ace moves to Serie A

Palermo have pulled off a coup by signing highly-rated Argentina star Javier Pastore. Pastore was linked with a host of Europe's top clubs after impressing at Huracan over the last few years. The likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Inter Milan have been credited with an interest in Pastore, but Palermo have managed to lure the 20-year-old to Sicily. "US Palermo announce they have registered Javier Pastore's contract with the League," read a statement on the club's official website. "The contract will expire on June 30 2014. The paperwork has been completed for several days, but the official confirmation was only given now out of respect for the player's commitments."
