Recent reports have stated that Manchester United are quite keen to sign Corinthians’ Alexandre Pato, who was also said to be interested in a move to the Premier League though La Liga giants Barcelona have been linked too. The Brazilian international has finally managed to get some of his old form back in the current campaign, during his loan spell at Sao Paulo.
With the likes of Luis Fabiano, Ganso and Michel Bastos playing alongside him at the moment, the former AC Milan striker recently confirmed that the Red Devils had made an offer for him towards the end of the summer transfer window though it seemed really hard to believe. However, with his contract with Sao Paulo all set to expire on 31st of December 2015 and Corinthians not too keen on keeping him, it seems the player will be available in January for a move back to Europe.
At the age of 26, the attacker could be quite useful for the Red Devils who are struggling to score too many goals at the moment. In a recent interview relayed by Sport, he said, “My future? It’s still not sorted, but I understand Spanish as well as I do English.”
