Manchester City target Javier Pastore has no intention of leaving Palermo this summer - agent

Argentine playmaker has not been contacted by any clubs
Marcelo Simonian, the agent of Palermo ace Javier Pastore, has ruled out a summer exit for his client, insisting the 21-year-old has "no intention" of leaving the Sicilian club.

Roma have recently been linked with a move for the Argentine, while Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City continue to be associated with a substantial transfer offer.

However, Simonian made clear there was no intention to seek a departure in the summer, and insists Pastore will remain grounded in his surroundings at the Aquile.

"No-one from Roma has contacted me or Palermo for Javier Pastore," the agent told

"Therefore, there is nothing true. We are not thinking about dealing with any teams as the intention is not to leave Palermo."

Pastore moved to Palermo in 2009 and has netted 10 goals in 30 Serie A appearances this season.
