Pato 'close' to completing £10million Chelsea move

Chelsea are close to completing a deal for Alexandre Pato for a reported £10m fee.

The news comes after weeks of speculation as to which Premier League club he would find himself at. Rumours originally surfaced after Pato had expressed a desire to play in the Premier League a number of months ago and after a successful loan spell at Sao Paulo the Premier League elite were interested.

Despite seemingly being around forever Pato is still only 26 and has renewed energy for football after a torrid time dealing with injuries in the previous three years at AC Milan and Corinthians.

ESPN Brazil have said that Pato has agreed a deal in principal and he will sign a contract worth €2.3 million (£1.77m) a year with the Premier League champions, in the coming days.
