Liverpool transfers: Javier Pastore wants to stay at PSG
Liverpool transfers: Paris Saint-Germain forward Javier Pastore outlines his desire to remain at the Ligue 1 champions
Javier Pastore has insisted he wants to stay and fight for his first-team place at Paris Saint-Germain despite reported interest from Liverpool.
The Argentina international has failed to score in eight appearances for the Ligue 1 champions this season, prompting reports of a potential move in January.
Pastore scored 13 goals and made six assists in 33 top-flight appearances for the Parisian club during his first season at PSG following a big-money move from Palermo.
Liverpool are among the clubs reported to be interested in the 24-year-old, but Pastore is adamant he wants to remain at the Parc des Princes.
“All these rumours are false and have nothing to do with the reality of the situation,” Pastore told French radio station RMC.
“As I already said, I was the first to choose this club and I will be the last one to leave it.
“I will fight to do well in the PSG. I know there are many players in my role, but I fight for a place without losing my head.”
On a possible return to Italy, he said: “In order to meet my friends, yes, but nothing more.”
