AC Milan's Brazil international striker Alexandre Pato agreed a four-year deal with world club champions Corinthians on Thursday, the Brazilian side confirmed on their website.

"In the coming days, Pato, who will wear the number seven shirt, will undergo a medical and then sign a four-year contract," said a club statement.

The 23-year-old Pato joined Milan from Internacional in 2007 and played 117 times for the Italian giants.

But his time in Serie A has been hampered by a series of fitness problems -- last season, he played just 11 times.
