Chelsea boosted in Brazilian striker chase

Published Add your comment

Chelsea target Alexandre Pato is open the possibility of a transfer away from AC Milan, according to club director Barbara Berlusconi.

"Everyone is transferable and Pato is no different," Berlusconi, who is dating Pato, told Vanity Fair.


"This is a delicate matter that does not concern me. I'd rather not talk about it. We are simply enjoying ourselves and taking things one day at a time."

Pato has been a long-standing target for Chelsea, but the Brazilian appeared to be settled in Italy.

When Andre Villas-Boas took over the Chelsea managerial post, the ex-Porto man insisted he wanted to play a more attacking style of football, and the Blues have since been connected to a group of Eureopan and South American forwards.

While Chelsea reportedly had given up hope of landing Pato, they will be boosted by the comments from Italian Prime Minister Sylvio Berlosconi’s daughter.
