Long questioned at the microphone of RMC Sport, Javier Pastore spoke of his contacts with Monaco and OL during the summer transfer window.
Pushed out by José Mourinho, Javier Pastore was announced on the shelves of many clubs during the summer transfer window. In France, Olympique Lyonnais and AS Monaco have therefore considered bringing the Argentine back to Ligue 1. But to believe the person concerned, contacts have not been very extensive.
« Lots of clubs have spoken to my agent, I don’t know what they asked for. They must have spoken only once or twice. It was difficult for a club to take me, I haven’t played for two years. The clubs didn’t know where I was. It was complicated to negotiate in this situation “, Explained the former Parisian at the microphone of RMC Sport.
And Monaco and OL were not the only clubs interested in France. ” We spoke with a lot of teams in France “, He assured before explaining not to regret his choice to sign to Elche, where he should benefit from a significant playing time: ” But I thought the best solution was to come to Elche. I will have the chance to play for a lot more minutes. This is the most important thing for me now.»
