Teenage Brazil striker Pato is still a Milan player - but for how muchlonger remains a mystery after a 'monumental bid' was made for him.
The 19-year-old could be the latest big name to leave the San Siro, having already attracted interest from Chelsea - now managed by ex-Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti.
Pato has made it clear he wants to discuss a move to Stamford Bridge but with Kaka having left for Real Madrid backtracked and pledged his future to the Serie A giants.
Rossoneri chief Adriano Galliani told Setanta: 'Milan this year has resisted a monumental offer for Pato - but I will not say which club made the offer.'
Recent reports also claimed that Chelsea are hoping to use Didier Drogba in a swap deal to sign Pato who scored on his Brazil debut last year and has netted 24 goals in 54 League games for Milan.
