Alexandre Pato: Has a meeting with AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani on W

The Brazilian forward has been in talks with Corinthians and has apparently made up his mind over the permanent transfer.

No details have been revealed regarding a fee but his agent claims an agreement is in place with AC Milan and all that is left to do is conclude the details of Pato's contract.

His representative, Gilmar Veloz, told Radio Gaucha: "We have a meeting with (Milan's vice-president) Adriano Galliani this Wednesday and we plan to take the final step. It's very close. Corinthians have accepted all Milan's demands."

Veloz added: "I believe that within two days, things will be done. It's a permanent signing. Nobody loans out 23-year-old players. Pato had other offers but decided to return to Brazil."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
