Pato rules out Chelsea switch

BY foxsports • July 10, 2010

AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato has ruled out a move to Chelsea, insisting he wants to spend at least another four seasons with the Rossoneri.

Pato has been linked with a move to Chelsea ever since Carlo Ancelotti swapped the San Siro for Stamford Bridge at the beginning of last summer.

Reports also suggest the 20-year-old could be on his way to Barcelona in a player-plus-cash deal for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

However, Pato, who has been at Milan since 2007, claims he wants to see out his contract with the Serie A giants.

"My sole aim is to be ready for the restart of training with AC Milan on July 20," the Brazil international told TV eband.

"I have a contract with AC Milan until 2014 and I have every intention of respecting it.

"And in 10 years, I will return to Brazil to end my career at Internacional, the club which belongs to my heart."

Pato progressed through the ranks at Internacional but only spent a year in the senior team before Milan snapped him up for 22million euros.
