Thursday January 30 2014

Alexandre Pato’s agent has surprisingly confirmed “it’s true, we received a couple of offers from Italy, including Juventus.”

The former Milan striker left Serie A in January 2013 for Corinthians after a series of injuries and there were reports today Juve had requested him.

“It’s all true,” assured agent Gilmar Veloz to calcionews24. “We received a couple of offers from Italy, including one from Juventus.

“The Bianconeri wanted the player on loan with an option to buy, but Corinthians rejected the proposal.

“However, I don’t doubt Juve will go back on the attack for Pato in August.”

Still only 24, Pato has a contract with Corinthians until 2016 and his price-tag is thought to be in the region of €15m.

The original report of Juve’s interest in The Duck had emerged through Uel Sports.

Pato has scored 10 goals in 27 games for Corinthians.
