Roma is on a roll this transfer season having signed Javier Pastore, which is their 8th buy this summer. He signed from Paris St-Germain for 24.7 million euros (£21.8m) and has been given a 5-year contract which keeps him at Stadio Olimpico till 2023.

PSG was interested in selling Javier Pastore as they had to abide by UEFA’s Financial Fair Play Rules, which would require PSG to make 60m pounds from player sales this summer.

“In my career, I have signed a lot of players, but Javier might just be the one with the most talent.”
