Chelsea boss AVB urges Abramovich to release £30M for AC Milan star Pato

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas believes he can land AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato for £30 million. The Daily Mail says Villas-Boas wants to make Milan striker Pato his first major signing of the summer.

Chelsea have been tracking the Brazil international since former Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti took over in 2009 and Villas-Boas is also a keen admirer of Pato's talents.

The player is likely to cost in the region of £30million but Villas-Boas is hoping that a player plus cash deal may tempt owner Roman Abramovich to loosen the purse strings.
