Alexandre Pato: Set for return to Brazil

The 23-year-old has been in talks over a return to his homeland, with a fee of 15million euros (£12.2m) reported in Italy.

His representative Gilmar Veloz told Brazilian radio network Radio Bandeirantes: "Milan gave the okay to the transfer, we are defining the details. Nothing can hinder the successful conclusion of the deal.

"It is a large transfer which concerns a good young player and Corinthians are making a big effort."

Pato quickly established himself as a favourite at the San Siro after signing from Internacional in 2007, scoring nine goals in his first half-season and reaching double figures in each of the next three campaigns.

However, he scored only once in Serie A and four times altogether last season and has made only seven appearances in all competitions so far this term.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.
