Chelsea appear to have lost out in their pursuit of Javier Pastore after the Argentina midfielder indicated last night he was close to joining Paris St-Germain.

Pastore revealed he is due to have a medical there as he finalises the details of a deal worth £37m. The news is a blow to Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas as he seeks to add to his squad.

"You can officially say that I will be a Paris St-Germain player, although I still need to do the medical and review some details," Pastore said.
