Young midfielder happy at Huracan

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."
