Fenerbahçe keen on PSG’s Pastore

Turkish giants Fenerbahçe are keen on signing Paris Saint Germain playmaker Javier Pastore, according to manager Ersun Yanal.

The Argentina international joined the French giants in the summer of 2011 in a big money move from Italian club Palermo and was the first marquee signing for the club under their new Qatari owners.

But since the move, he has failed to produce the kind of form in France that prompted the Parisian club to part with almost £ 40 million for his signature, the kind of form that he displayed with Palermo, which made him one of the most sought after youngsters in Europe with the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid keen on bringing him to the club.

He has been a more or less regular player in his two seasons at the club and won the Ligue 1 title with them last season but his failure to produce any real magic has called the future of the player in question and Fenerbahçe are keen on taking advantage of that situation by offering him an escape route.

English giants Liverpool have already registered their interest in bringing the 24 year old playmaker to the club while Italian giants AC Milan are also looking at the prospect of bringing the player back to Serie A where he cut his teeth since his move from his homeland.

But it is Fenerbahçe who are looking to make a firm offer for the player as the January transfer window opens and move ahead of the rest of the pack as they look for a genuine playmaker. According to Yanal, he has told the club hierarchy to set up a meeting with PSG and see what direction they want to go with Pastore and stated that he wants a genuine #10 at the club.
