Supposed Liverpool target Javier Pastore has come out and denied suggestions that he is looking to leave Paris Saint Germain ahead of the World Cup.
Pastore has had his opportunities limited somewhat this season by the good form of others in the squad, making only 12 appearances last season, but with PSG having secured a second consecutive league title, the Argentine clearly does not want to depart.
Speaking to Le 10 Sport, Pastore said: “It has not even gone through my head to leave.
“Here I can play and win titles, something that I have not yet managed to do elsewhere.
“[PSG] are also a great team, it would be very hard for me to leave.”
Pastore was part of the initial steps taken by PSG to establish themselves as a European force, signed from Palermo in 2011 for €39.8 million. He has since gone on to make 79 appearances for PSG during his three years at the club.
Liverpool have apparently targeted Pastore as an addition to their squad as they begin to build for their return to the Champions League.
