Pastore: 'Palermo important, but...'

Javier Pastore thanks Palermo as “very important for my career, but my future will be decided after the Copa America.”

El Flaco is currently in Argentina preparing for the tournament, which he'll be playing on home turf, amid constant transfer speculation.

“Going to Palermo was very important for my career and I hope to continue doing well over the next few years,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“My future will be decided after the Copa America. I will talk with President Maurizio Zamparini and my agent, then we'll work out what to do.”

Zamparini has publicly set Pastore's price-tag at €50m and he is of interest to Manchester City, Barcelona, Chelsea, Inter and Juventus.
