Reports in London has indicated that former AC Milan striker and Sao Paulo attacker was spotted at Stamford Bridge during Chelsea’s Champions League match against FC Porto last Wednesday. That has fuelled speculation that he might just be on the verge of signing a deal for the Premier league defending Champions.
Pato, 26, was turning into a fine player while at AC Milan before he picked up a niggling hamstring that affected his career. He returned to Corinthian in his native country and has been consistent since then.
However, he the attacker recently revealed that he is in the want of a move to Europe with Liverpool thought to be his most probable destination. Alas, the Metro have reported that Chelsea a have offered the player a £12 million deal and the deal will be announced aver a fortnight from this report.
The attacking trio of Radamel Falcao, LOic Remy and Diego Costa have been dismal this season. They have together scored five goals in all competitions this term and have casted doubt over their future with Chelsea.
Chelsea have prepared a list of strikers they will attempt to sign in January but if they sign Pato, it will turn out as a surprise signing.
Pato scored 26 goals for his club this term. He was on loan from Corinthians to Sao Paulo this term.
