Alexandre Pato Refuses To Rule Out Stunning AC Milan Return

Alexandre Pato has refused to rule out a return to AC Milan.

The 29-year-old Brazilian striker moved from Sport Club Internacional to the Italian club in 2007, making over 100 appearances and scoring over 50 times in his six-year stint at the San Siro.

"I've received some offers from Serie A teams and also from other European leagues," he told Corriere dello Sport - Stadio (via Football Italia).

"We'll see at the end of the year. I'm very happy that Leonardo [Araújo] and [Paolo] Maldini have returned to Milan, for them and also for the fans who needed people to be the face of Milan.

"I've spoken to Leo a few times and, of course, there were some jokes about my possible return to Milan.

"Joking aside, though, I have a year on my contract here in China and we'll see what happens. I receive so many comments every day from Milan fans on social media, from Italy and around the world.

"That makes me happy, and it makes me think that despite some years having passed since I left, the affection from the fans has never gone away.

"Who would I like to play with at Milan? That's a question I'd ask the fans: with whom would you like to see me play in this Milan?"

He also spoke about Milan's €30m deal for fellow Brazilian Lucas Paquetá, who has been described as the 'new Kaká.'

"Paquetá is very good, my advice is to learn Italian quickly and try in every way to do well immediately," he said. "The Milan fans are incredible and will love him."

Pato's injury-blighted career has seen him spend short spells at several clubs, including São Paulo, Chelsea and Villarreal.

Should AC sign Pato next summer?
