Alexandre Pato: Is happy to stay at AC Milan, according to his agent

Pato has struggled to break into the Milan first-team this season after recovering from long-term injury, making just seven appearances, scoring two goals.

The 23-year-old's situation at the San Siro appears to have caught the attention of a number of clubs, including those from England.

Chelsea are one side believed to be interested in the frontman while a swap deal involving Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli was also mooted earlier this month - though that was swiftly denied by Milan president Silvio Berlusconi.

Pato himself revealed last week he may consider a January move away from the club in order to find more first-team football, sparking rumours of a potential loan switch to Brazilian sides Atletico Mineiro or Corinthians.

However, the striker's agent, Gilmar Veloz, has dismissed talk of a temporary move back to Brazil and insists his client is happy to stay at Milan.

"Pato is doing well in Europe, he doesn't need to return to Brazil," Veloz told O Tempo. "He has 18 months left on his contract; it's unthinkable that an expensive player like him would be loaned out."

Regarding any other potential transfer deals, he added: "I can't talk about something that doesn't exist. Nothing about that came to me.

"When there is something concrete, we can talk. But right now, he is happy at Milan."

suspect the review will conclude that Iago Aspas should never have been loaned out. Two hat-tricks in two Copa Del Rey games. One might say he has really turned a corner.
