Huracan midfielder Javier Pastore has rejected an offer from Manchester United, according to the player's agent.

Pastore is regarded as one of the most promising players in South America after catching the eye at Huracan.

A host of Europe's top clubs are believed to be tracking the 19-year-old and United are thought to have sent scouts to watch him in action this season.

Pastore's representative Marcelo Simonian claims the young midfielder snubbed the approach from United as he wants to be guaranteed regular first-team action.

"I received an offer of 10million Euros for Pastore but the player isn't interested so much in money as he wants to be transferred to a team where he can play and grow up," Simonian told Diario Ole.

"We want the correct team and project."

Lazio have also been strongly linked with Pastore, but Simonian insists he has not been contacted by the club about a possible move to Italy.

"Nobody from Lazio has spoken with me, but that could be a good team," added Simonian.

"But I can only imagine that as I haven't received any proposal for him."

I've never heard of him either.

But I'm always a bit wary about agents claiming that a certain team want their player, especially when it's someone like Man Utd, Barcelona, etc. You can never tell if it's true, or whether the agents are just trying to just get some publicity for the player which is often the case.

Never heard of him so I doubt it. Also, being at the best club in the world, learning from the best manager and the best players > week in week out first team football

Besides he should have the attitude that if he wants first team football he has to produce.

Nail on the head.

He certainly chose a good team. Always best to start at a smaller club & I think he's better suited to Italian football. Spain would be best for him, though.

Once I read that we failed to secure a work permit and that's the reason we missed out on Pastore, and not because he rejected us.

Hmm never heard of this kid before.
Does anyone know if he's any good?
Seen him a few times. Seems like a decent prospect. Their president wanks over him for no reason tho, he values pastore somewhere near £40m, which is completely ridiculous

edit: **** me! Saw date
