Agent Gilmar Veloz admits Juventus have enquired about Corinthians forward Alexandre Pato
Gilmar Veloz, the agent of Corinthians forward Alexandre Pato, has admitted that Juventus have enquired about his client.
The Brazil international has been strongly linked with a move back to Europe over recent months, having failed to find his best form back in Brazil.
“It’s all true [the links with Juventus],” Veloz told calcionews24. “We received a couple of offers from Italy, including one from Juventus.
“The Bianconeri wanted the player on loan with an option to buy, but Corinthians rejected the proposal.
“However, I don’t doubt Juve will go back on the attack for Pato in August.”
Pato joined Corinthians from Milan in January 2013 for €15 million. Last season he scored nine goals in 30 appearances.
