“In recent games, I’ve played a lot and I’m happy. I still have a year-and-a-half left on my contract, and I’m very calm.

“I was looking for more playing time, it’s true. The coach makes the decisions and I have to make sure to keep improving to get some PSG playing time.”

Pastore appeared to wave goodbye to PSG fans after the 3-1 win over Caen on Wednesday, but he looks to be intent of fighting for his place.

Despite now being a peripheral figure with the French giants, he has still managed six goals in all competitions.

Emery also played down talk of an exit away, declaring: “I’m very pleased with Pastore.

“He did not say he wanted to leave. He works to be on the field, with the very great talent he has.”
