Pastore: Higuain perfect for PSG

Paris Saint-Germain playmaker Javier Pastore insists Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain can help the Ligue 1 club achieve their goal of becoming "one of the biggest clubs in Europe".

Pastore joined the big-spending French club last summer for €39.8 million from Serie A outfit Palermo. In total, PSG spent a reported €108 million on new recruits last year, and Pastore believes his Argentina team-mate Higuain would make an ideal addition to their star-studded roster.

"We'd all be delighted for him to come to Paris," Pastore told RMC. "I am in regular contact with him. We talked a lot about our lives, of our mutual friends and that PSG is interested in him.

"We do not know yet if he will come to PSG. It is true that there are contacts. I am delighted that PSG wants to get him. He's a friend and a great player who would do us the greatest good. PSG can become one of the biggest clubs in Europe."

PSG are currently second in Ligue 1, three points adrift of Montpellier with two games remaining. Pastore, though, remains confident the club will win the title, pointing to this weekend's clash between Montpellier and third-placed Lille as a pivotal moment.

"PSG will be champions," he said. "The match between Montpellier and Lille [on Sunday] will be decisive for us."
