Having failed to move past the Round of 16 of the Champions League, even after signing two of the best in the game at the moment in Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappe, French giants PSG are expected to spend big again this summer. They are looking to reshape their midfield and the backline and might resort to selling some of the stars in their squad, to make space.
One such player, who has now admitted that his time in France might be up is, Argentine midfielder Javier Pastore. One of the best dribblers in the game, the 28-year old has just a year left on his current contract and has revealed that his time at PSG is coming to an end. He still has at least three years at his best and will be a huge coup for even the best of the teams in Europe.
A number of teams in England are already interested in his services but where will he fit in best? Here are three English clubs that should look to sign Pastor this summer:
The Reds lost a talisman in Philippe Coutinho in January and could lose Emre Can on a free transfer at the end of the current season. Naby Keita will be a welcome addition but Jurgen Klopp is still in search of a midfielder, who can walk into the first team next season. Pastore, will all his experience behind him will be a good fit for the Reds. He was previously linked with a move to Anfield in January and Liverpool continue to be linked him for the summer and is more than a decent option for the club.
The Gunners might also be short of midfielders at the end of the season. Santi Cazorla does not look like an option while Aaron Ramsey continues to be linked with an exit. Jack Wilshere is expected to leave at the end of the season on a free transfer and Wenger needs more than one midfielder to make sure he can compete with the best next season. Pastore and his style of play fit the bill perfectly for the Gunners.
The Red Devils expected Paul Pogba to play the role of a creator from deep midfield but the French ace has failed to deliver so far at Old Trafford. This has pushed Jose Mourinho into the transfer market in search of another midfielder as he is also expected to lose Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini at the end of the season. Michael Carrick will also not be available, making signing someone like Pastore all the more important.
