Corinthians new signing Alexandre Pato: I'll always remember Milan
Alexandre Pato says he will never forget his time at AC Milan as he prepares for life in a Corinthians shirt.
The two clubs agreed a €15m deal for Pato's transfer yesterday evening and the Brazil striker will wear the No. 7 shirt after signing a four year contract.
Pato, 23, wrote an open letter to the fans which was published on AC Milan's official website: “I am going to Brazil to play consistently, but it won’t be easy to forget.
“I wish to salute, but above all to thank, everyone from the President to the many people I worked with in these unforgettable years at Milan.
“I am going to Brazil, to Corinthians, so I’ll have the opportunity to play consistently. It won’t, however, be easy to forget Milan.
“I am and always will be very tied to this jersey, the club colours and all the Rossoneri fans. Above all at this moment my thoughts and my biggest thanks go to them.”
