Pastore flies to Milan to meet with his agent, discuss contract rescission


Javier Pastore’s time at Roma is drawing closer and closer to an end.

Over the past 24 hours, the capital club has accelerated exit talks for the midfielder after his unauthorised trip to France. ‘El Flaco’ traveled to Paris in order to watch PSG, his former club, in action at the Parc des Princes.

The midfielder, who’s currently frozen out of the squad by Jose Mourinho, never asked permission from the club to travel abroad.

This event led to Roma executive Tiago Pinto calling an urgent meeting yesterday with Marcelo Simonian, Pastore’s agent, to discuss a contract rescission. The pair met in Milan, however, an agreement still hasn’t been formalised.

Pastore still has two years remaining on his contract with the club, earning a whopping €4.5 million per season. Roma, however, want to reach an agreement to terminate his contract immediately, but this will come at a price.

According to Sky Sport, the 32 year-old is seeking a buonuscita (payoff) of €4 million from the capital club. He is currently en route to Milan in order to discuss the situation with his agent and determine his next steps.

Should the parties come to an agreement, it would formally end the ex-Palermo man’s three-year nightmare with Roma.
