Pastore wants to stay at PSG

Javier Pastore has said he has no thoughts of leaving Paris Saint-Germain despite a continued struggle to establish himself at the club.

Javier Pastore left Palermo to join French side Paris Saint-Germain.
Pastore has yet to fully establish himself at PSG.

Pastore, 24, contributed a single goal and as many assists to PSG's Ligue 1 title triumph, making only 17 starts in his 28 league appearances.

Although coach Laurent Blanc has repeatedly voiced his appreciation of Pastore's potential, the Argentina international has failed to fully realise that potential since arriving at the Parc des Princes from Palermo in 2011.

But Pastore harbours ambitions of at least seeing out the remaining two years on his PSG contract.

"I'm not thinking about leaving," he told Argentina's told Argentina's Gol de Vestuario in comments reported by Foot Mercato.

"I'm playing and winning trophies, which I had never before managed to do during my career. Moreover, I'm at a big club. It would be difficult to leave PSG.

"When I arrived in 2011, PSG had only won two titles in their history, and we have won as many again already. The team has been really well strengthened, and we hope to win as many trophies as possible."

Pastore came to prominence at Palermo before making a reported 42 million euro switch to PSG when he became the first major signing made by the club's owners, Qatar Sports Investments (QSI).

He said he would have no problem with returning to Serie A at some stage, adding: "I really loved the life and the style of play in Italy. If I get the chance to go back there, I will do so with pleasure."
