Chelsea beaten out to Brazilian wunderkind signature

Chelsea had been heavily linked with Brazilian teen sensation Alexandre Pato from Internacional Porto Alegre but has been beaten out by AC Milan to the young star’s signature.

Pato will leave Brazil and start training with Milan from September 3rd onwards but at age 17, he will not be eligible for the Milan first team until the new year.

Pato was the center of the biggest transfer speculation for a player his age for a very long time. Milan beat Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Chelsea to a deal following protracted negotiations and will join fellow Brazilians Kaka and Ronaldo at the club.

The rumored price for the player was 15m pounds, the contract will run for 5 years at a rumored 1.4m pounds per season. It’s a big time signing, Pato has all the talent to become the best striker in the world.
