Pastore happy to stay at Palermo

Much sought after Javier Pastore has revealed that he expects to remain for Palermo for a few more seasons.
The Argentine midfielder is regarded as one the hottest prospects in world football, with several of Europe’s elite clubs credited with an interest in the player.
Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona are thought to be monitoring Pastore’s progress closely, while the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Inter Milan are thought to be in the hunt for his services.
Pastore recently criticised the club’s valuation on his head, but at the same time is happy to continue his career in Sicily.
“It’s not yet time to talk about my transfer. We will see later. Now I’m happy to stay in Palermo,” the 21-year-old told Corriere dello Sport.
“This is the ideal place to complete my growth. One day I’ll be ready for the biggest clubs, but now I’m happy where I am.
“I have a contract with Palermo until 2015. If an important offer does arrive and president (Maurizio) Zamparini decides to talk about it with me, the situation could change, but now I think I still have a few years in Palermo.
“When I leave, I will go to a team where I can play. Going now to Barcelona or Real Madrid would mean to stay on the bench if not in the stands.
“I can do a transfer like that when I’m 28, when I’ll be ready.” Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
