Pastore admits he's keen to remain in Italy next season and would welcome a transfer to the Serie A champs.
"Yes, I like AC Milan," he confessed.
"(Palermo president Maurizio) Zamparini is like a father to me, but I want to measure myself in a more important setting. I would like to stay in Italy, I know there are 4-5 teams in the race for me.
"Roma? No, they do not seem to be a present option for me."
