Pato admitted to Brazilian daily Zero Hora today: "Milan is the better solution for me."

The 17 year-old's Mum and Dad travelled from their home in Parana to Porto Alegre this week to discuss their son's future with Internacional directors. It was agreed that Pato would remain with Inter until the end of the season in December ahead of moving to Europe during the winter market in January.

While Real remain in the mix, it appears that the Brazilian contingent at Milan has convinced the Pato family that they are the "best solution" for Alexandre.
