Javier Pastore has been tipped to leave PSG for quite some time, as the Argentinian playmaker has linked with a potential exit from the Ligue 1 giants every time the team needs to sell a player in order to raise funds.
Those rumours eventually came to fruition of late, and Pastore’s departure from the reigning Ligue 1 champions will become a reality this next Monday, as AS Roma will reportedly announce the arrival of the former Palermo star back to the Serie A.
Pastore lived some of the best moments of his career in Italy and with that in mind, it makes sense for him to move back to Italy. He will definitively get more chances to shine playing for Roma, as he held a less-than-secondary role for Les Parisiens last season, and that was not likely to change during the upcoming term.
According to a report from Sky Sport Italia, Pastore’s move will be for upwards of €25 million and will be another boost as PSG try to raise €40-60 million by Friday to satisfy their financial fair play obligations. That seems to be PSG’s biggest priority right now, as they must comply to those rules in order to avoid future penalties going forward.
Pastore has been playing for PSG since 2011, and throughout his career he has compiled 45 goals and 62 assists in 269 appearances for the Ligue 1 giants.
