In-demand PSG star not looking for Italy move.
The agent of in-demand PSG playmaker Javier Pastore says his client will not be making a return to Serie A after falling down the pecking order at the Parc Des Princes, according to Football Italia.
The Argentine was the first of many big-name signings to join the French giants following their lucrative Qatari takeover in 2011, signing from Italian club Palermo for around £33.5m.
Pastore initially continued his fine form in Ligue 1, though he doesn’t look like being a regular in the side this season under new manager Laurent Blanc, which has led to speculation that the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United could look to sign him in the January transfer window.
The 24-year-old has also been linked with a return to Serie A, where he first found the best form of his career, though his agent has played down these rumours, insisting his client has no nostalgia for Italy and that his time there is in the past.
“Javier is happy in Paris,” he said. “He has no nostalgia for Italy.
“Football goes in cycles.”
Pastore has scored 24 goals and contributed 16 assists in his two seasons in Paris, and tasted success last season as the expensively-assembled team managed to conquer France and win the Ligue 1 title.
