Real Madrid Transfer News: Javier Pastore Wants Cristiano Ronaldo At PSG
Paris Saint-Germain playmaker Javier Pastore wants to play alongside Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.
The French Ligue 1 player Pastore was quoted by French daily L'Equipe as having said that it would be "wonderful" if he were to play for PSG.
Ronaldo has denied rumors that he is considering a move away from Real during the January transfer window and he has been linked to Ligue 1 leaders PSG and English Premier League clubs Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.
"Ronaldo is one of the best players in the world. He scores in almost every match. He can make a huge difference individually," Pastore told L'Equipe.
"If he would sign for Paris, it would be wonderful for the club and for the players already at the club. So if he could come, I would say yes."
Earlier this week, Ronaldo insisted that he is happy at Real Madrid. The Portuguese international went on to claim that he enjoys playing at Real and it's not just the money that appeals to him.
"I play for the passion I have for football and for the love of the teams I represent," The 27-year-old forward told France Football. "If I played for money, I would be at another club.
"All players love it when teams like Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United or Chelsea are linked to them. Moving is not something I am thinking about though. I am happy at Real Madrid and I want to stay here and win things.
"What happens in the future is in the lap of the Gods. In life anything is possible and nothing is impossible, but for now I am not thinking about another club or a new contract."
The PSG too on their part have denied that they are planning a move for Santiago Bernabeu superstar.
It was reported by La Gazzetta Dello Sport that PSG were considering to buy the Portuguese forward and Real boss Jose Mourinho in the January transfer window.
However, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi denied the reports.
"I haven't talked with anyone from Real Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo is a great player, but a Real Madrid player," Al-Khelaifi told the Italian daily.
PSG sporting director Leonardo added: "Look, we haven't met anyone. As you know, at this moment we can't talk about the transfer market. This is not the time to think about the transfer market. Let's talk about the good things we have done on the pitch so far."
However, PSG star Zlatan Ibrahimovic's agent Carmine Raiola has been quoted as saying that Ronaldo's move to PSG was still very likely.
