Pato, who leaves in a â‚¬15m deal, bid farewell to the Rossoneri squad at Milanello before Friday morningâ€™s training session.
â€śIâ€™m unable to speak, Iâ€™m very emotional,â€ť the forward told journalists as he left the clubâ€™s training base.
â€śI said bye to everyone, which I really wanted to do, and I want to thank all of the Milan fans.â€ť
Pato not only leaves behind the Diavolo, but also his girlfriend Barbara Berlusconi â€“ a club director and the daughter of owner Silvio Berlusconi.
â€śThe club and the player reached the agreement that they wanted,â€ť Barbara told ANSA. â€śThe interests of the club have always come before my private life.
â€śLike last year, I was not involved at all in this affair. Pato was not sold to Paris Saint-Germain a year ago because neither he nor my father were totally convinced of that transfer.
â€śOur relationship? We are a happy and calm couple, the distance between Milan and Sao Paulo does not scare us.â€ť
