The agent of Alexandre Pato has ruled out a return to Brazil for the AC Milan striker.

Gilmar Veloz met with Milan officials yesterday over Pato's future.

"Pato is doing well in Europe, he doesn't need to return to Brazil," Veloz told O Tempo.

"He has 18 months left on his contract; it's unthinkable that an expensive player like him would be loaned out.

"When there is something concrete, we can talk. But right now, he is happy at Milan."
