Pato rules out Chelsea transfer


AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato has categorically ruled out a move to Chelsea after pledging his future to the Italian club.

The 20-year-old Brazilian has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge ever since Carlo Ancelotti left Milan to take the coaching reins at Chelsea at the beginning of last summer.

Pato was a surprise omission from Brazil's World Cup squad following a mixed Serie A season as part of an under-performing Rossoneri side.

However, the former Internacional starlet is not looking to leave Milan any time soon.

"I have a contract with Milan until 2014 and I intend to respect that," he said.

"Maybe one day I will return to Brazil to close my career with Internacional, who are the team I support."
