Alexandre Pato: Wants more regular playing time

Pato has returned from a long injury lay-off to make seven appearances for Milan so far this season, scoring two UEFA Champions League goals.

Several clubs, including Chelsea, have been linked with the 23-year-old Brazilian, who came off the bench to score the Rossoneri's third goal in their 3-1 victory at Anderlecht in midweek.

Pato has cast doubt over his future at the San Siro, telling Mediaset Premium: "I had said to the coach (Massimiliano Allegri) I would come off the bench and close the game.

"Milan are doing well and Stephan El Shaarawy is doing well, but I want to play. We'll see what to do with my agent."

Pato's agent, Gilmar Veloz, is planning talks with his client and AC Milan next week and was tight-lipped over a potential move.

He told tuttomercatoweb.com: "If he said those things he has his reasons.

"We want to understand and evaluate the situation with AC Milan. For now it would be redundant to say something more.

"On Tuesday I'll arrive in Italy to speak with Alexandre and AC Milan and then evaluate what to do.

"Could he leave Milan? I don't know, we'll talk after Tuesday."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
