Pastore hints at Inter move

Javier Pastore has admitted that he would relish a return to Serie A with Inter Milan, having fallen down the pecking order at Paris Saint-Germain.

The 28-year-old attacking midfielder is concerned that a lack of gametime with PSG could cost him a place in the Argentina squad for the World Cup finals in the summer, leaving Pastore to consider a move before the transfer window shuts at the end of the month.

I must do more to get into the World Cup squad.

He previously enjoyed two years in Italian football with Palermo between 2009 and 2011 and admits he would enjoy another crack at Serie A.

Pastore told reporters after PSG had thumped Montpellier 4-0 on Saturday: "I don't know what I'll do yet, because the situation is very difficult.

"I am very happy in Paris, but I haven't made any decisions yet. All I want is to play more regularly so I can go to the World Cup. Not being in the tournament because I stayed here and didn't play would be very painful for my career.

"I need to make a decision along with the club. I must do more to get into the World Cup squad, as I wasn't called up by Argentina last time because I wasn't playing. I have to play regularly to have a better chance.

"Inter could be a solution, but I don't know what will happen. It's not an easy decision for me or the club. We'll see over the next few days and try to reach an agreement."

Inter are currently priced at 6/5 to finish in the top four in Serie A this season, with Roma available at 1/4 and Lazio 1/3.
