Pato rules out AC Milan exit

Pato has recently been strongly linked with the likes of Paris St Germain and Corinthians.

“Milan has received several offers besides one from Paris St Germain,” Pato said to Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I have also received interests from Brazilian clubs but it’s not the time to return home as I am only 22 and I feel I am at the club I want to be.

“I have every intention to remain in Europe for many years before I return to Brazil. I can only thank these clubs but I will stay at Milan.

“I will remain until the last day of my contract, which expires in 2014. I am grateful to this club for all it has done for me.

“I have received help from them during difficult times and I have no intention to change teams. I want to repay the faith Milan has in me.”
