AC Milan patron Silvio Berlusconi says he convinced Alexandre Pato to turn down PSG last week.

Milan and PSG had agreed a fee for the Brazilian before his dramatic change of mind.

“I decided to keep Pato because I consider him a player of great talent,” said the patron.

“I was not convinced by the whole operation, not from a tactical stand-point nor an economic one. It is a decision that I made autonomously.

“I am convinced this was the best thing for Milan.”
