Roma midfielder Javier Pastore: Talleres return so close in January

Roma midfielder Javier Pastore has revealed he came close to joining Talleres in January.

Pastore hasn't played for Roma since May 2020 due to injury.

“My situation at Roma is a little complicated. We'll see what happens in June," Pastore told Mundo Deportivo.

“I have two years left in my contract, and I've spoken a lot with [Talleres President] Andres Fassi.

“He did everything possible to sign me in January, but it wasn't possible."

Pastore is a product of Talleres academy. He played there before joining Huracan in 2007.

“I desire to return, but I want to do it in the best conditions, feeling well and important.

“This is not the right moment, I haven't played for one year, and I don't have the right rhythm. Now I am feeling better. I want to put the injury behind me.

“I want to feel well to return where I want to play. Otherwise, I would not be useful."
