Arsenal and Liverpool-admired Javier Pastore has come clean on speculation about a return to Italy, and denied any notion of leaving Paris Saint-Germain.

Pastore had been subject to interest from Napoli in the summer, but a move to Roma became the topic of discussion recently when he was spotted in the Italian capital.

With Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and even Turkish side Fenerbahce ready to make a move for him in January, it remains to be seen what offers will allow PSG to speak to Pastore.

For his part, though, Pastore is adamant he will not leave the Parc des Princes, telling RMC Sport: "It's not true that I want to move away from PSG.


"I was the first to choose this club and I'll be the last to leave. I will fight for this club.

"It's true, there are many players in my position, but I will fight for a starting berth without losing my head."

As for being spotted in Rome, Pastore joined Borussia Dortmund's Mats Hummels and Bayern Munich's Thomas Muller – both linked to Barcelona – in claiming he had only gone for a good evening out.

He added: "A return to Italy? I went to the movies and to see my friends, nothing more."
