Alexandre Pato transfer to PSG depends on whether Carlos Tevez moves to AC Milan
The skilful Brazilian striker's future could depend on the outcome of another potential transfer.
Alexandre Pato's AC Milan future is still up in the air
Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato has converted himself in the prime objective of Paris Saint-Germain in the Winter transfer window, but the AC Milan goal-poacher will only move to the French side if the Rossineri sign Argentine striker Carlos Tevez from Manchester City, affirmed L'Equipe.
Pato, who is still only 22 years of age, could move to PSG depending on whether the French side are willing to put €50 million on the table to make up for the two and a half year contract that he continues to have with Milan, something which seems quite improbable.
Meanwhile, directors of PSG took advantage of their club's recent friendly match with AC Milan in Doha on Wednesday to reunite with the Brazilians agent. Incidentally, Pato scored in the 4th minute to hand Milan a 1-0 victory over the French side.
Paris Saint-Germain are hoping to make their mark on the European stage, and while they still have a chance of capturing Pato, they have also shown interest in his compatriot, Kaka of Real Madrid.
"At this moment, there are no possibilities of making him sign," admitted Carlo Ancelotti, who coached Kaka when both were at Milan.
Despite having been eliminated from European competition, as the leaders of the French league, PSG don't necessarily need an attacking midfielder at present, as they already count with high-quality players like Javier Pastore, Jeremy Menez and Nene in their squad.
"In June, on the other hand, if PSG qualify for the Champions League, this would be different," concluded the journal.
