PSG keen to cash in on Pastore

Paris Saint-Germain are keen to cash in on Javier Pastore this summer and have offered the attacking midfielder to Roma, Inter and Atletico Madrid.

The Ligue 1 champions are looking to offload some fringe players in order to balance the books and comply with Uefa's Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations and they are desperate to recoupe some of the €40 million (£32.5m) they paid for the Argentine three years ago before his contract expires in 2016.

However, neither of the approached clubs has shown an interest in signing Pastore at this point following the 24-year-old's disappointing 2013-14 campaign.

Pastore made just 18 Ligue 1 starts all season and has mainly been warming the bench since the arrival of Laurent Blanc last summer.

The midfielder himself is keen to stay at PSG, but the French giants are ready to cut their losses and will accept an offer in the region of €15m (£12.2m).

PSG were hit with a €60 million fine (£48.8m) for breaching the FFP regulations earlier in May, but they have since stressed that they will continue to buy the players they want, reaching an agreement with Chelsea over the transfer of David Luiz for €49m (£39.8m) last week.
