Alexandre Pato has pledged his future to AC Milan, despite reported interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Corinthians.

The Brazil international has been strongly linked with a move away from the San Siro this summer.

Pato turned down a move to PSG back in January but the Ligue 1 giants have not given up hope that the South American could change his mind.

Brazilian side Corinthians are also keen to acquire Pato's services.

"Milan has received several offers besides one from Paris Saint-Germain," Pato said to Gazzetta dello Sport. "I have also received interests from Brazilian clubs but it's not the time to return home as I am only 22 and I feel I am at the club I want to be.

"I have every intention to remain in Europe for many years before I return to Brazil.

"I can only thank these clubs but I will stay at Milan.

"I will remain until the last day of my contract, which expires in 2014.

"I am grateful to this club for all it has done for me.

"I have received help from them during difficult times and I have no intention to change teams.

"I want to repay the faith Milan has in me."

Pato, who joined Milan in 2007 from Internacional, endured an injury-plagued season, which saw him make just 18 competitive appearances for the Rossoneri this term.
