Money not enough to conclude the deal…
Milan are set to demand Corinthians midfielder Paulinho as part of any deal for striker Alexandre Pato according to reports in Italy.
Football Italia claims the Rossoneri hope to coax Corinthians into releasing the highly rated player as part of a possible €15 million deal which would see troubled striker Pato head the other way. It would strike a blow to city rivals Inter who have been pursuing the Brazilian for months if the Selecao star were to move to Milan instead.
This follows reports that CEO Adriano Galliani is flying to Brazil on Sunday to listen to offers for Alexandre Pato and Robinho.
He reportedly seems set to ask for the 24-year-old highly regarded midfielder as part of any possible deal for either Pato or Santos target, Robinho.
Paulinho recently stated his desire to stay at Corinthians after starring in their 1-0 win over Chelsea in the World Club Cup final.
