Pato on the verge of exit and Milan are willing to use him in order to lure the Holland star…
Reports in Italy suggest Milan will sell Alexandre Pato in the summer and will look to replace him with in-demand striker Robin van Persie.
Corriere dello Sport claim the Serie A outfit are considering the prospect of parting ways with the 22-year-old Brazilian, who has made just 45 appearances for the Rosseneri over the past two years, and see Van Persie as an ideal replacement for the former Internacional striker.
The Milan giants have been linked with the in-demand striker over the past few weeks and will reportedly step up their pursuit of the Dutchman during the summer transfer window.
Now Gunnersphere suggest that a player exchange is possible, if of course Van Persie does decide to call it quits at Arsenal.
Despite his injuries over the last few seasons, Pato remains one of the most dynamic strikers in world football. The Brazilian possesses electric pace and speed, great technical ability and also has a piercing eye for goal.
When on song he is simply unplayable. 61 goals in 141 appearances for Milan in five seasons is pretty impressive for a player who has not yet entered his prime.
But now everything has been bright for Pato so far. Injuries constantly keep him out, therefore he can’t do his best. No matter the love and the goals, Milan need the money out of Pato’s possible sale.
I’m not saying this deal should be done whatever happens, I’m merely suggesting another route we could possibly take should this occur this summer.
Pato for Van Persie? It’s not that bad of an idea…is it?
