The agent of Alexandre Pato has opened the door to a move to Chelsea for the AC Milan striker.

The agent of Alexandre Pato has opened the door to a move to Chelsea for the AC Milan striker.

“Milan have to decide Pato’s situation,” agent Gilmar Veloz told Antenna 3 television. “We are enthusiastic about Chelsea’s interest in the player, but the final decision is entirely down to Milan.

“Pato has a contract with Milan, but if the club reached an agreement with Chelsea, then we would be willing to negotiate.”

It is reported Carlo Ancelotti wants to bring The Duck with him to London and the club has offered £45m for the teenage hitman.

“At the moment, I cannot give any guarantees to the fans that Pato will remain at Milan,” warned Veloz.

“I do not own the club and so only a spokesman for Milan can answer that question.”
