The agents of Alexandre Pato edge closer to a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for their PR efforts, with news that a move to Chelsea is actually going to happen.

Pato is reportedly on a scheduled flight to London in order to sign a six-month loan deal with Chelsea. He will also sign a new contract at Corinthians, giving the club more time to find a buyer.

The agreed deal is that Chelsea will pay all of Pato’s wages – £30,000 per week – but will not have an agreement to sign the forward on a permanent deal. Previous reports had suggested a £12m fee.

His agent, Gilmar Veloz, confirmed the story to Brazilian TV channel SporTV.
