Pastore commits to Palermo

Javier Pastore admits that he doesn't see himself playing anywhere other than Palermo next season even amid interest from Europe's biggest clubs.

The 21-year-old Argentine playmaker is one of Serie A's most talented footballers and continues to be linked with the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Chelsea.

Speaking ahead of this evening's clash with Napoli, Pastore was asked for his reaction to Edinson Cavani's belief that if he were to move to San Paolo, the fans would go crazy.

"I would like to thank him again," Pastore told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "He is a great champion like Lavezzi, who is my friend and it will be a pleasure to see him again.

"It was great to play with Edi at Palermo last season. I have not been at all surprised by his recent performance against Utrecht in the Europa League.

"But I am happy at Palermo. Like I said recently, I see myself here next year. Talking about Real Madrid, Barcelona or Napoli has no sense for me at the moment.

"I am only thinking about my team and qualifying for the Champions League, which is an objective in our reach. And I think that Napoli are also in a position to realise this objective.

"It's a game between two teams who play good football, which is also very offensive and spectacular," he concluded.
