The Transfer Talk panel have the latest on the French forward's situation following claims he wants to leave Old Trafford this summer.

According to Sky sources, the 28-year-old is currently asking for wages up to £190,000-a-week.

West Ham are keen to bring Pastore to the club and have re-opened talks over a deal that would be worth up to £17.5m.

PSG are willing to sell the Argentine as they aim to comply with UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations.

Pastore, who joined PSG from Palermo in 2011, has only one year left on his current contract at the Parc des Princes.

He has scored 45 goals in 265 appearances for the current Ligue 1 champions.
