Pato ready to shun Blues

Published Add your comment

AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato insists he will remain at the San Siro as long as the club want him, despite reported interested from Chelsea and former coach Carlo Ancelotti.

The 19-year-old, who is under contract at Milan until 2012, claims he will not be following Ancelotti to the Barclays Premier League club.

"Pato will be at Milan always," he told Studio Sport. "I am part of Milan and the club decides on my life."

He added: "I am happy at Milan and I am here to work for Milan.

"The past year and a half for me has been very great, I want to help Milan win the Champions League."

The Brazil international is a protege of Ancelotti, who brought him to Milan as a 17-year-old in 2007, and has been linked with a summer move to west London in the wake of the Italian coach's arrival at Stamford Bridge.
