Chelsea hold Pato talks

The Daily Telegraph reports that Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink is keen to strengthen his injury-hit attacking options with the Brazilian striker.

Manchester United have also been strongly linked with a move for the highly-rated former AC Milan star.

The 26-year-old has scored 10 goals while on loan at Sao Paulo in brazil last season.

The Brazilian striker’s contract with Corinthians is set to expire in December.
