Only 37 appearances in all competitions over the last three years for Javier Pastore. The Argentinian, ever since joining Roma in the summer of 2018, has not been able to find consistency in performances and was often subjected to long, injury-riddled stops in his Roman adventure.
Brought in by former sporting director Monchi, Pastore was supposed to become one of the new faces and leaders of the club. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be. As reported by TMW, Pastore and Roma will soon start working on a solution that would allow the player to leave the club prematurely (his contract expires in 2023) in favor of other destinations.
Although in a recent interview he spoke of a possible return to his boyhood club Talleres, other destinations include MLS clubs: Orlando City, Los Angeles Galaxy and Inter Miami. Thus, all signs point to Pastore leaving Roma over the course of this summer. Despite being one of the club’s highest paid players (with a salary of 4.5mln) Pastore was never quite able to leave a mark due to the vast number of injuries that sidelined him over the last few years.
In the season 2020/21, Pastore made only 5 appearances, all of them in the last two months of Roma’s campaign.
