Pastore: Higuain called me to ask about Paris Saint-Germain

The Argentina international has claimed that his compatriot was keen to get the low-down on the Ligue 1 outfit as he considers his future with Los Blancos.
Paris Saint-Germain playmaker Javier Pastore has revealed that in-demand Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain rang him a fortnight ago to esquire about the club.

Los Blancos are desperate to hold on to Higuain but the Argentine has become increasingly frustrated by his lack of game time this season in spite of his fine goalscoring record, and is expected to depart the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.

Compatriot Pastore has now claimed that the forward is considering a move to the French capital, though 'El Flaco' did add that PSG is not the only club in the hunt.

"He called me two weeks ago to ask me questions about the club, Ligue 1, the city of Paris," the former Palermo man told L'Equipe. "He told me he had this opportunity [to come to PSG], but that other clubs were interested in him."

Pastore, who has been capped 13 times by Argentina, arrived at the Parc des Prince last season from Palermo for a reported fee of 39.8 million euros.
