Pastore: “I want to remain at Roma and see my contract out”.

John Solano

Roma midfielder Javier Pastore spoke to Argentine outlet Telefonoticias on Instagram and, once again, discussed his future as he continues to be linked with a move away.

Are you going to leave Roma? Do you think your departure is being discussed too much?
I want to remain here. All I’m thinking about right now is ending the season in the best way possible and achieving our objectives. This is the most important thing because the club has suffered a lot due to this (COVID-19) situation — just like many clubs.

The club is a business and needs money because it’s operating at a huge loss and not going through a good spell.

When the season ends, the club will have to get into a better financial state and to do that it will have to sell players or buy younger ones who earn less. So right now we’re waiting.

I have a two-year contract and would like to see it out. I feel good here and really like the country. My family and I are very happy.

I am also happy at the club, which has a manager who really believes in me. I would like to stay — a lot of rumors have been coming out recently but I don’t know why. I’m always close to leaving for China, Japan, Argentina or England. Every day it’s a new club.

But the truth is that I have not talked to anyone — not even Roma, who have not informed me that they’ve received offers for me.
