Chelsea, everyone else chasing 17 year old Brazilian wonderkid (video clip)

Like a metronome, it’s happened again. A young Brazilian so talented has appeared on the radar he has all of Europe’s biggest clubs scrambling to sign him. Alexandre Pato has Chelsea drooling, as well as everyone in Italy, especially Inter Milan, AC Milan, Fiorentina and Juventus. Benfica have barely gotten a glance, Manchester United scouts have tried and failed to see him, and for my money he’s worth the buyout clause on just what the video below shows.

Imagine Kaka as a striker, with a few of Cristiano Ronaldo’s tricks and subtract 5 years from both of their ages. Brazil has tried to keep him under wraps but it has failed. At one point his professional club has resorted to having the new phenom train in private.

Alexandre Pato is so sublime that he’s now on the World radar. He’s only 17 but he’s already in the first team at his club Internacional de Porto Alegre after the club’s management made him signed a multi-year contract complete with a 15m pound buyout.

Let’s take the fairy tale to a new level: less than two minutes into his first professional game, Pato, which means ‘duck’ in Portuguese and came from his home town name ‘Pato Branco’ meaning ‘white duck’, scored his first goal –on his first touch.

Just look how sublime he is for his age:



In addition to his newfound stardom at club level, Pato was instrumental in Brazil’s qualifying for this year's U-20 World Cup by scoring five goals.

International have recently relented and have apparently started listening to offers. It appears another Brazilian will be leaving his home at a very young age for stardom abroad.

Chelsea can have him, he doesnt look that good. Rubbish defending in that video

good dribbler, and control, but lack the killer finishing touches.

Finishing touches can be developed and improved, what i don't like about him is his lack of vision, creativity and intelligence (which only comes naturally)... U can see from the video that there was a lot of his team mates who are free, but then try to find self-glory in the end there was lack of end product.

EXAGGERATION.... Please define "sublime" here, look at samir nasri of Marseille(if not because of his physical size he would have been called the next Zinedine Zidane), dats what u call sublime... Pato reminded me of David Bellion when he was young...

this kid is sublime, look at that close control and trickery

Why are you all criticising him? He's only 17 and he can do all that. In my opinion if you're that good at such a young age you are sublime.

Who ever said those defenders are shit is carlos puyol and the barcelona defence shit he is the best thing to come out of brazil sin ronaldinho and he is cmin to CHELSEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"World Soccer" magazine (Jun-07) says he's "the big promise for the future" (in Brazil).

"Up All Night" (Radio 5, UK) football talk, a couple of weeks ago, had a Brazilian correspondent saying 'exceptionally good in the air' ...'genius' ...'young ronaldo' ...'tries 5 things, and 4 don't come off (yet)'.

And his Wikipedia article includes Arsenal and Liverpool as clubs linked with him.

Funny how Nasri scored for France last night...and id rather have Rooney, Ronaldo, Nani, Anderson, Giggs, Scholes than Drogba, Sinclair, Saha, Joe Cole and Prato...besides Prato wont even get a work permit because hes never played in Europe nor close to even getting called up to the Brazil squad, so any team is taking a risk, as it might be 3/4 years before he can play for Chelsea, that is if they buy him.

distinctly average methinks. he can do some tricks but then half of brazil can... plus the defenses he's playing against on that vid are not very good. poor finishing. selfish. some of you think he's the next ronaldinho? ha ha

(2nd comment)

drogba (excellent)
sinclair (who?)
sahar (again, who?)
joe cole (great attacking midfielder)
pato (see previous comments about being average)

i'm sure the premiership will be shaking its knees in fright next season

Of course all of you know better than proffesionl scouts and pundits who do say he has lots of talent. When Ronaldo was that age he was just like that, trying tricks, losing the ball etc but now he's the best player in the world. Give Pato a few more years and you will see what he can really do.

knock knock
who's there?

Denilson the once record transfer fee, oh so perfect at tricks & dribbles that dissapeared up his own **** like so many other well touted, best thing since sliced bread future superstars!
Dont beleive the hype!

Its very funny read some previous comments for people that never saw this kid playing. I am from Brasil and I guarantee that this guy will be in 2 or 3 years the best player of the world...he is unbelievable complete for his age… usually great players when young doesn’t know kick, pass or position in the field, but this guy do all things in a fine way...if Chelsea get him, they will have a player similar for Ronaldo in Barcelona 1997-1998 ouh he is very good heading the ball too..Astonish!!!!!

Considering hes only 17 he has to go down as an exceptional talent. All of the individuals posting here calling him rubbish are either jealous or afraid of this lad already. Ive seen that on a lot of various websites where manu and other premiership fans are rubbishing him coz they know hes so much better than their 'so called future talents such as ronaldo, rooney etc' and let me tell you, those players are old bags compared to this kid of ONLY 17. so lay off the rubbishing and enjoy the skills. also, he looks like a young maradona:) no wonder everyone's afraid of him already!
