Pato close to joining Corinthians claims agent
AC Milan's Alexandre Pato is close to sealing a move to Corinthians according to his agent.
Reports in Brazil claim that Corinthians are set to conclude a €15m deal for the Brazilian striker and his agent have confirmed that negotiations are coming to an end.
Gilmar Veloz told Lancenet!: “We have chosen Corinthians. Milan have understood it’s time to try a new experience elsewhere.”
“Right from the start when we decided to return to Brazil, Pato and I chose Corinthians. If all goes well, then it’ll be something we have planned for some time. We spoke with Adriano Galliani and he understood our reasons.
“Milan have understood it’s time for Pato to try a new experience elsewhere. Corinthians are doing everything possible to make the deal go through.
“There are still a few details to sort out between the two clubs, but it is not up to me to say what those are.”
