Javier Pastore has said alleged quotes made by him about leaving Palermo are not true.
Palermo had ‘given up’ on Pastore after it emerged that he did not want to be at the club but he has since tried to clear his name, saying that he does want to be a part of it with the Sicilians.
"Many people asked me via Twitter if I said that it was time to leave Palermo (as written in Fox Sports Argentina)," said Pastore in a statement.
"The truth is that I never said that because, as I always point out, I am happy at Palermo.
"What I repeat every time is that if I receive an interesting offer that is good for both the club and for me, then we will evaluate it along with Palermo and my agent."
