AC Milan ace Alexandre Pato has shut down talk of a return to Brazil.

Corinthians have expressed interest in taking Pato on-loan next season.

But the young striker said: "Some Brazilian players remain in Europe for about 10 to 12 years. I would be 27 if I return after 10 years here.

"Who knows whether I will then return to Brazil. You never know what will happen in the future.

"I can only thank the clubs that have approached my agent. I just have to do my thing on the pitch."
