AC Milan director Barbara Berlusconi says she kept her distance in negotiations with PSG over the sale of Alexandre Pato.

Barbara and Pato are now an item and the Brazilian eventually turned down PSG last month - even though Milan had accepted their offer.

"I have deliberately kept out of negotiations with PSG for Pato," said Barbara.

"Living with gossip? Sometimes not so good things happen in life, it's just things you need to accept."
