Javier Pastore has rubbished claims he has already said his goodbyes to his Paris St Germain team-mates.
The attacking midfielder has been persistently linked with an exit from the club since the arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe over the summer.
Liverpool and Inter Milan are among those linked, while Manchester United legend Eric Cantona recently suggested the Argentina international would be worthy of wearing the No.7 shirt at Old Trafford.
Reports in France claimed he had recently said farewell to him team-mates with a January move expected to happen, but Pastore says those stories are wide of the mark.
‘It’s a lie to say that I have said goodbye to my team-mates. I’ve always thought about playing for this club and doing the best I can every time,’ Pastore told Mundo Deportivo.
‘In recent games, I’ve played a lot and I’m happy. I still have a year-and-a-half left on my contract, and I’m very calm. I was looking for more playing time, it’s true. The coach makes the decisions and I have to make sure to keep improving to get some PSG playing time.’
Pastore has been with PSG since 2011 after joining from Palermo. In that time the 28-year-old has scored 27 goals in 165 Ligue 1 appearances.
