15M Bid for Pato

Dino Panato

Time to part ways with the Duck, a year late and 20M short.

Brazilian club Corinthians have made a €15m bid for Milan forward Alexandre Pato, according to reports in the Italian media.

Sky Sport Italia have claimed that the recently crowned World Club Champions have made a substantial bid for the Rossoneri striker which is likely to be turned down by Massimiliano Allegri's side.

The 23-year-old has been blighted by injures since his move to the San Siro from Internacional in 2007, with the Milanese giants hoping to loan out the young attacker rather than sell him outright.

The photo above sums up my recent memories of Alexander Pato. I was promised goals, leadership and panache. Instead I got injuries, poor performances and the tactical progression of a snail. Instead of moments of joy, I was treated to moments of disbelief as Allegri used sub after sub to replace him when we needed him to perform most. Barcelona, Juventus and Inter three of the biggest performance flops I have ever seen, one player, one season. Enough is enough.

Last January Milan turned down a $35M offer from PSG with promise of glory and warm bed for Barbara Berlusconi. Instead we lost $20M, no sense in losing anymore. Pato, pack your bags, this team is moving on without you...a year late and a few bucks short.
