After seven years at PSG, time has come for Pastore and the club of the French capital to separate. This year was particularly difficult for the Argentinian, so much that he went from favorite to persona non grata for the Parisian fans. Highlight of a disappointing season, a non-call by Argentina National Team for the World Cup in Russia.
Two clubs show interest for Javier Pastore: Discussions would take place between PSG and West Ham United. The Premier League club, which finished 13th this season, is looking to strengthen the team in midfield not to live another season below expectations. The London club is ready to invest, but Pastore will have to accept a wage cut.
West Ham could be in tough competition with a Serie A club. Indeed, the new coach of Napoli, Carlo Ancelotti, who knows very well the Argentine player for having coached him during his stay on the Paris bench, would like to work with the Parisian midfielder again. ESPN announces that there has been no official approach of the Italian coach to PSG or El Flaco’s entourage yet, but this could happen in the coming days.
Still waiting for a decision from UEFA for the Financial Play Fair, PSG appreciates to see the interest of both clubs for his midfield player and the possibility of a forthcoming sale. Will Pastore be tempted by a return to Serie A, a championship he has always enjoyed or will he dare a new adventure in England?
