Everyone hold your horses: Javier Pastore to Paris Saint-Germain is not complete yet. When announcing the previously mentioned signings of Salvatore Sirigu and Mohamed Sissoko, PSG director of sport Leonardo was asked about signing Javier Pastore, to which he reportedly smiled mischievously, but crucially, said nothing. Just another round of rumours, right?
However, L’Equipe took this smile to mean that the deal, for €45m was complete, but, with no official confirmation, this deal isn’t wrapped up yet, and could still hit a snag. Still expect it to go through though: Respected journalist Ben Lyttleton, who covers Ligue Un, reports that the deal will likely go through Friday or Saturday.
