Pato is just one meeting away from leaving Italian giants Milan for Corinthians, his agent has confirmed.
"I think that everything will be sorted out in a couple of days at the maximum," representative Gilmar Veloz told the Brazilian media.
"Milan and Corinthians are a step away from an agreement for Pato's transfer. There is just one more step, a meeting between the Brazilian club and Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani.
"Corinthians have agreed to everything which Milan have asked for," he continued.
"The transfer will be on a permanent basis seeing as nobody will loan you a player who is 23-years-old. Pato received other offers too, but he decided that he wanted to return to Brazil."
