Chelsea are being linked with a bid for AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato.

The Sun says Milan plan to cash in on Pato this month.

Paris St Germain are in pole position to land the 22-year-old but the news will have put Chelsea on red alert.

New PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti tried to sign Pato while he was at the Blues and owner Roman Abramovich is a great admirer.

Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has insisted there are currently no talks with PSG over Pato's future but he did not say the striker was not for sale.
