thumbnail Hello,

The Argentine has indicated he has made no comments about wanting to quit Palermo in the summer but reiterated that if a decent package for him and the club materialises, he'd go

Palermo star Javier Pastore has issued a statement on his official website stressing he has never voiced his wish to leave the Italian club but repeated his stance that a tempting offer to the Sicilian club would see him depart.

The playmaker was earlier today quoted by Fox Sports-Del Plata as saying the time for him to quit Palermo had come, but the 21-year-old has now indicated he has never made such remarks.

"Many people have asked me via Twitter if I had truly said it was time for me to leave Palermo (as published in Fox Sports)," a statement from the midfielder read.

"The truth is I have never said that, I would never say something like that, I am very fine at Palerm, comfortable and happy.

"What I said, and I repeat it every time I am asked, is that if an offer arrives which is interesting and good for me and the club, I will look at it together with my club and my agent."

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini noted he is "resigned to losing" Pastore in the summer, in what appears to be a clear indication the highly-rated Argentine could move on before the new season commences.

The Argentine wonder has attracted a host of suitors across Europe after an impressive two years with Palermo, whom he joined from Huracan in 2009. He has been recently linked with a move to Roma while Manchester City and AC Milan have also been credited with interest.
