Alexandre Pato’s agent has revealed that Chelsea have made a bid for the Brazilian youngster, but added that Real Madrid, Milan and Internazionale are also interested in the player.
The Internacional striker scored two goals in Brazil’s opening 3-2 win over South Korea and his display has attracted the attention of some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
“Real Madrid, Inter, Milan and Chelsea have already made official offers for Pato,” his agent Gilmar Veloz confirmed.
“We are analysing the deals and will sit down with Internacional. Then at the end of the year his future will be defined.”
Chelsea are understood to have made the best offer, with a bid in the region of €20million.
Veloz hinted that Chelsea are leading the chase, but he had doubts over whether Pato would be granted a work-permit in England.
“With Anderson, he obtained his permit to Manchester United with the condition that he was a talent of outstanding quality – and I don’t know if Pato would be treated like this.
“Although, we have not decided whether he would go to Chelsea, Milan, Inter or Real Madrid.
“Pato is not yet 18-years-old. To move, he needs to be of legal age, and he is not until September,” explained Internacional president Vitorio Piffero
“There is no reason for him to go now. What would he do in Europe until September? As he could not play.”
