With the wealth of talent at Laurent Blanc’s disposal at Paris Saint-Germain, it is only natural that some of the fringe players will become frustrated with a lack of game time.
As such, Javier Pastore has been linked with a move away from the French capital, as the Argentine playmaker has largely been utilised as a substitute this season at the Parc des Princes.
Liverpool have been accredited as a major suitor of the former Palermo man, with Brendan Rodgers’ charges thought to be ready to launch a summer bid for the South American schemer.
However, despite Pastore only getting 12 domestic starts for PSG this term, his agent Marcelo Simonian has rubbished claims that the player will move at the end of the season.
"Javier is happy in France," he told Le Parisien.
"He feels good with his team-mates and the staff and works every day to keep playing for PSG.
"He thinks only of PSG, and I can assure you that this is the truth."
Pastore came off the PSG bench in midweek to score what may well be a crucial goal – the French side’s third in a 3-1 win over Chelsea in their Champions League quarter-final first leg.
The 24-year-old has the likes of Lucas Moura and Ezequiel Lavezzi ahead of him in the PSG pecking order.
