Pastore: “I dream of returning to Talleres.”

Roma midfielder Javier Pastore is still hoping to make an impact in Europe before returning to Argentina to finish his playing career.

Speaking to Tiempo de Juego, the Argentine revealed that his dream is to return to his boyhood club, Talleres, but first he wants to continue playing in Europe.

“I still have a two-year contract in Europe,” he said. “But I dream of returning to Talleres.”

“I could be closer to my family. But you never know, I say two years but maybe it will be next year. My desire is to continue competing at high levels. Talleres is growing a lot, which makes me want to come back even more.”

Pastore’s three-year tenure with Roma has been nothing short of a nightmare. The midfielder has appeared in only 37 matches while dealing with a host of injuries since joining from PSG in 2018.

“I underwent surgery in August 2020 and was out until January 2021, when I rejoined the team. The season was already halfway over and it took me a long time to win a place, but the important thing is that the operation was successful.”

“If I don’t receive calls from other teams, I’ll remain a Roma player. If they want me to leave, we’ll see if we can find a club to continue with for another two years.”
