Milan: Pato not joining Blues

11 June 2009 08:19
AC Milan have ruled out the possibility of selling striker Alexandre Pato to Chelsea. The 19-year-old Brazilian wonderkid has been linked with a move to the Blues following confirmation of former Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti's appointment to the Stamford Bridge hot-seat last week. Speaking earlier in the week, Pato claimed he would talk to Ancelotti before deciding whether to follow him to England. But Milan's general manager Adriano Galliani has denied reports that Pato could be the second major player - after Real Madrid-bound Kaka - to leave the San Siro this summer. "Pato will remain, 100 per cent," he warned. "He's untouchable."
