Alexandre Pato: Has been linked with return to Brazil with Corinthians

Reports suggest Pato is unsettled at the San Siro and the Brazil international has been heavily linked with a return to his homeland.

Rossoneri vice-president Adriano Galliani revealed earlier this week the Serie A giants had received an offer from an unnamed club for the 23-year-old.

Gobbi has now confirmed Corinthians have entered "early talks" over signing the frontman.

He told Lancenet: "We sounded him out, there is interest, but we have to keep calm. I can't comment on what Milan said.

"This kind of subject affects the fans, we have to go slowly. And if the negotiations do happen, then great."

Gobbi added: "It's still very early talks. It's like dating a woman, you sound her out first, see where she lives, get her phone number, talk with her friends, find out what she likes, check if there is interest, then you invite her for dinner. Then schedule other dinners to have success.

"Only then you start dating her, then you get engaged and married. Everything takes its own time."

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
