The Argentina international admits that he needs regular playing time ahead of the World Cup, and is attracted to the Serie A giants

Javier Pastore has admitted that he would be open to a move to Inter from PSG in January.

Pastore came on as a substitute in PSG's 4-0 win over Montpellier on Saturday, marking just his 15th appearance in Ligue 1 this season.

The Argentina international revealed in November that he was considering his future in the French capital, and he is aware that he needs regular minutes if he is to make Argentina's squad for this summer's World Cup.

“I don’t know what I’ll do yet, because the situation is very difficult,” Pastore told reporters on Saturday.

“I am very happy in Paris, but I haven’t made any decisions yet. All I want is to play more regularly so I can go to the World Cup. Not being in the tournament because I stayed here and didn’t play would be very painful for my career.

“I need to make a decision along with the club. I must do more to get into the World Cup squad, as I wasn’t called up by Argentina last time because I wasn’t playing. I have to play regularly to have a better chance.”

Pastore admits that San Siro is an attractive destination, having previously played for Palermo in Serie A.

“There is a lot of talk about Inter and if I were to leave, I’d like to go there, especially as I know Serie A and my wife is Italian,” he added.

“Inter could be a solution, but I don’t know what will happen. It’s not an easy decision for me or the club. We’ll see over the next few days and try to reach an agreement.”
