Chelsea target Pastore denies declaring he wants out of Palermo

Palermo star Javier Pastore denies he has talked up the prospect of leaving while home in Argentina.

El Flaco, wanted by Chelsea, was quoted by Fox Sports Argentina as saying: "I feel that the time to leave Palermo has arrived."

However, the player released a statement on his official website to clarify the situation.

"Many people asked me via Twitter if I said that it was time to leave Palermo (as written in Fox Sports Argentina).

"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.

"Yours, Javi."
