Palermo starlet Javier Pastore has once again revealed his ambition to play alongside Lionel Messi at Barcelona.
The young Argentine has started the season in fine form, emerging as one of the most promising footballers in the world.
Interviewed in El Mundo Deportivo, Pastore said: "At Palermo they know well that it's 'a dream' [of mine] to play together with Lionel Messi at Barcelona.
"It would be a dream to play with him at Barcelona, a much bigger team than Palermo. It's what I want.
"I have always dreamed about playing in Europe and now that I am here I want to keep growing and I know that to do it I have to play for a club like Barcelona.
"I am calm. I am learning a lot. I believe that I am on the right path and I want to keep improving.
"I am 21 and I still have many things to learn. Here at Palermo I am trying to learn as much as possible step by step."
