"We didn't really need him," noted patron Moratti in Gazzetta dello Sport.

"In recent months we had relaxed our interest in Pato for three reasons. First, it was a big investment and I didn't feel like it.

"Second, Pato would have taken away space from a youth product who is doing formidably well - Balotelli. And third the Brazilian is not yet 18, he has a lot to prove. We have immediate objectives and so focus on players with experience."
