Palermo midfielder Javier Pastore has revealed he's in regular contact with Barcelona and Real Madrid. But the Argentine insists he's not ready to move to either of the Spanish giants.

"Both Barcelona both Real Madrid have contacted my agent, Marcelo Simonian, but I immediately rejected any prospect of an immediate departure," said Pastore.

"I know that most players would have accepted the offer immediately, but I feel I have yet to make improvements here in Palermo, and I thank this club for helping me.

"I'll leave when I feel ready, not before, now I have to play here with continuity, and to achieve other goals gradually."
