BREAKING NEWS: Corinthians Ponder Loan Move For Milan Striker Alexandre Pato

Brazilians hoping to lure the ace on loan…

Corinthians are weighing up the merits of a summer move for Milan striker Alexandre Pato, according to Globoesporte.

The Brazilian club are reportedly in the market for a world-class striker after dispensing with the services of Adriano in March following the 30-year-old’s failure to impress as a result of fitness and off-the-field problems.

Pato has endured an injury-plagued season, which has seen him make just 18 competitive appearances since the start of the campaign.

It is believed that Corinthians will try to convince Milan to release Pato on loan and believe their high-end medical facilities will help rid the Brazilian striker of his many niggling injuries.

However, the Serie A giants have not given any indication that they are willing to sell the 22-year-old, who joined the club from Internacional in 2007.

Questioned about the club’s reported interest in Pato, Corinthians football director Edu Gaspar told Globoesporte: “We are waiting for the end of the Serie A season to see.

“He is a great player, but this is something that Milan must want, too.”

  1. Even though they’re selling Paulinho to Inter, they do not have enough money to make this move happens. Corinthians are far more interested in packing Paulinho to Inter and have Forlan in exchange.

    This is the last rumor here.


    • Well I suppose they can afford a loan move… or not?
      We desperately need to offload Pato somewhere and see if there’s a way to get this situation over with.
      You play good half a season, you’re rewarded a move back.
      Play bad, story’s over…
      Diego Forlan? I simply don’t understand what did he expect after joining Inter? He had a perfect career in Madrid and was a captain of the team, which is no ordinary thing. And he decided to throw it all away for sacrificing move to out neighbors…
      You know what? Maybe we should try to sign him! 😀 As far as I see, all Inter flops become stars in Milan :))


      • According to La Gazetta, Pato makes € 3,5 million every year – without bonus. Difficult to match this monster salary here in Brazil.

        But I guess he is going to leave. Paris? Madrid?

        Forlan’s move had two simple reasons: Falcão Garcia and money – a LOT of money.

        And, for God sake: do not give Galliani any idea like this one. 😛 Delete this comment, plz. 😛 😛


      • Hahahahaha 😀
        Directed to our CEO, quote:
        “Hey there Mr. Galliani, if you ever read this, have in mind that the statement above was written by a third person or when the admin was in the period of sleepwalking.”
        Hehe, there it is! 🙂 Honestly, I just had that idea, although I’ve never kinda liked Forlan so much.
