interested in signing Brazilian striker,
Alexandre Pato from Sao Paulo.
Pato has been linked with a move

his time at AC Milan. However,
injuries and dip in form resulted in him
falling out of favour at the Italian club.

for Sao Paulo now. The Brazilian has
an impressive record of 30 goals in 74
games for his current club and
managed to score 63 goals in Europe
as well, during his time at Milan.

would reject the chance to play for a
prestigious club like Manchester
United. Especially given the fact that it
might be the last opportunity to make
his mark at the very top level.
