Real Madrid are keeping tabs on Javier Pastore's form at PSG. The Argentina international quit Palermo in the summer for PSG in a blaze of publicity, rejecting the likes of Real, Chelsea and AC Milan in the process.

El Confidencial says Real president Florentino Perez has not taken the snub to heart and remains a fan of Pastore.

Florentino has asked football adviser Zinedine Zidane to keep a close watch on Pastore in France this season.
