PSG smash record for Pastore
Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed they have broken the Ligue 1 transfer record in completing the signing of Javier Pastore from Italian club Palermo for €42m.
PSG announced the arrival of the Argentine international on its official Twitter account, with the 22-year-old signing a five-year deal at the Parc des Princes. However, Pastore will not be immediately available to Antoine Kombouaré with the talented midfielder short of match fitness.
The move surpasses the €33.5m PSG paid Real Madrid for Nicolas Anelka in 2000, the previous Ligue 1 record.
