Buenos Aires: Argentine international Javier Pastore`s protracted transfer to Paris Saint-Germain seems finally set to go through after the player announced the move on his own website.
"It can now officially be said that I am going to be a Paris Saint-Germain player, all that remains is for me to have my medical and sort out some other details," the 22-year-old told the website.
PSG and Pastore`s current club Serie A side Palermo have already agreed a fee that could reportedly reach 43 million euros, a French record.
Sources close to the capital club told AFP that the player could still arrive in Paris before the end of the week to sign his contract and possibly even be presented to the Parc des Princes crowd ahead of Saturday`s Ligue 1 season-opener against Lorient.
"I`m really anxious to start this new stage in my career," Pastore went on.
"The club explained to me their plans and the challenge seduced me immediately.”
"I want to do my bit for what is a great club with a great history.”
"To win the league and the cup (are the objectives), I want the team to win everything."
