AC Milan is reported to have agreed to the sale of young striker Alexandre Pato according to Radio Bandeirantes on Jan. 3, 2013. The youngster was once believed the future of the Red Devils attack but his future has been blurred in the past 18 months and he looks set for a new adventure.
The young 23-year-old Brazilian is set to return to his native country with Corinthians as according his agent Gilmer Veloz with his comments on air this morning, “AC Milan said 'yes' to the transfer. We are defining the details. The deal will happen.”
Pato will be hoping to reignite his career that has dwindled in the last two campaigns due to injury and the rise of young forward Stephan El Shaarawy and will be looking to make the most of a return to the league where he started his career with Internacional.
His career totals at Milan have saw him make 150 appearances scoring 63 goals while also being part of the club’s 2010-11 Serie A and Tim Cup double. He was also named the 2009 Serie A Young Player of the Year during the prime of his youth.
It will be interesting to see what becomes of the young star as he still has many years left and a fresh start to make it all count once more upon his arrival back in Brazil.
