Back in Argentina for Christmas, Javier Pastore was interviewed by the Argentine press in Buenos Aires. Calciomercato.com was there as well.
"It was a good year, between the World Cup and Palermo - Pastore said - I hope to continue like this. I renewed the contract because the president made me a good offer, which was mutually convenient. There was the opportunity to go to another club, but I would not have been able to play with the same continuity that I do at Palermo".
"Barcelona? I am glad to hear they are interested in my, it's one of the nicest things that may happen, however, I need to grow more to play there. I am now thinking to continue with Palermo, then if in the future a big club should come forward, I'll think about it. Now I just want to improve".
