Paris Saint-Germain has completed the signing of Javier Pastore from Palermo, in a deal worth 42 million euros, the French club has confirmed on its official website.

The 22-year-old has signed a five-year contract with Antoine Kombouare's outfit, who were bought out earlier in the summer by the Qatar Investment Authority, and will wear the number 27 jersey.

Pastore, who has been the subject of much transfer speculation throughout the summer, will be presented to the media on Monday at the Parc des Princes.

The Argentine playmaker is the latest in a string of captures this summer by PSG, who make him its third raid on Serie A, following the previous arrivals of goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu and forward Jeremy Menez.
