Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato has cast doubt over his future at AC Milan by claiming he is unhappy with his lack of game time, alerting Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham who are thought to be interested in signing him.
Pato came off the bench to score in the Champions League in midweek, but a starting role is what the Brazilian is after and that doesn’t appear to be happening at Milan.
“I had said to the coach (Massimiliano Allegri) I would come off the bench and close the game,” Pato told Sky Sports.
“Milan are doing well and Stephan El Shaarawy is doing well, but I want to play. We’ll see what to do with my agent.”
The player’s agent Gilmar Veloz is also upset by the lack of game time his client is receiving and he plans to sit down with Milan officials to discuss the strikers’ future.
“If he said those things he has his reasons,” Veloz told tuttomercatoweb.com.
“We want to understand and evaluate the situation with AC Milan. For now it would be redundant to say something more.
“On Tuesday I’ll arrive in Italy to speak with Alexandre and AC Milan and then evaluate what to do.
“Could he leave Milan? I don’t know, we’ll talk after Tuesday.”
