Manchester City and Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern will be forced to look elsewhere after talkSPORT revealed that their target, Javier Pastore, is set to sign a new deal with Paris Saint-Germain.
The Argentinian attacking midfielder attracted attention from the two English heavyweights as his current contract expires in 2016.
This subsequently gave City and the Reds the hope in the Tavern that they could sign him for a cut-price in the summer, as he would only have a year left.
But the situation could be totally turned on it’s head, forcing Manuel Pellegrini and Arsene Wenger to look elsewhere.
The 25-year-old is now set to extend his stay at the Parc des Princes after he made his move to Paris from Palermo for £30 million.
Punters are not shocked to hear he is willing to stay at the Ligue 1 champions as his new deal is rumoured to be worth €6.5 million per season and it run until 2019.
Manchester City and Liverpool fans….. Now that this transfer target is soon to be unavailable, which midfielder would you like to be targeted next? Let us know your thoughts below.
