Ancelotti brought best out of Pastore

The Real Madrid boss helped bring the best out of Pastore, who has endured a difficult 12 months with the reigning French champions, in his debut campaign in the French capital.

Pastore netted 16 goals and provided eight assists during the 2011-12 campaign, following his £32 million transfer from Palermo, but his numbers have deteriorated since then and PSG could be willing to sell provided the price is right.

Real Madrid face competition for €25m star

It’s understood that Real Madrid would need to pay around €25 million to secure the South American’s services, although the Spanish giants may face stiff competition for his signature from several Premier League clubs.

Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool were all put on high alert last month after Pastore admitted that he could leave the Ligue 1 title holders, and they will not allow the technically-gifted attacking midfielder to join the reigning European champions without a fight.
