Chelsea and AC lead Pato race

CHELSEA are facing stiff competition from AC Milan for Brazilian wonderkid Alexandre Pato.

Striker Pato will star in the Under-20 World Cup next month - even though he is one of the youngest players in the competition at 17.

Some of Europe's top clubs will send their scouts to keep tabs on the Internacional ace.

But Pato's agent Gilmar Veloz has revealed European Champions Milan and the Blues are already leading the race for his signature.

Veloz said: "There are possibilities and official interest that is not invented.

"The club know about everything. Internacional allowed a representative from Milan - Leonardo (scout) - to look at him.


"Chelsea also sent a person who was interested. But nothing is certain.

"Internacional have the federative rights to the player and they are taking care of it with us."

If Chelsea do strike a deal for the £18million-rated starlet, Veloz believes they may have to wait to get their man.

Pato would struggle to get a work permit and that could be a stumbling block in any move.

Veloz added: "Nothing will be done without the agreement of the club so the Internacional fans can be calm because Pato has contract with the club until 2009.

"But because he is not 18 yet, he cannot leave before January 2008."


Chelsea's sporting director Frank Arnesen has a history of bringing Brazilian stars to Europe.

He took a 17-year-old Ronaldo to PSV Eindhoven for £4million in 1994.

And Arnesen hopes he can produce similar results with the capture of Pato this summer.

I'm a little confused with this 'work permit' lark. What does it actually mean? and why is it so hard to get one?

If anybody knows. (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

There is no way Messi was 18+ when he joined Barca, he was barely 17. I think he was anyways. (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif)

Work permit is very difficult to get in England.

If you are non-EU player than you need to have some international app. for you country, or should have played for any EU club etc...

BTW, I dont think that it depends too much if you're 17 or 18 to get work permit

P.S. After all, dont worry coz he can come in Milan in January, since in Italy he wont need it, or he can get it easier (I dont really know, but I just know that is not a problem)

If it's even harder to get in England, that's superb news. We'd surely have better chance than Chelsea. (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

messi was in youth academy for like 5 years, so it's different type of contract, he became a star after that...and he probably didn't have professional contract yet

Why are we after R10, wanting to pay +70 million euro for him? we could get Pato and turn him into something even better than R10, but for only 20 million max. the boy has great potential. I just hope he doesn't choose Chelsea cause England's not the right country for Brazilians.

Everyone's saying he's good... I don't know... if he's half as good as people say I would welcome him with open arms but we do need another experienced forward too.

So, I guess he'd be the costly signing and the other guy could be Gudjohnsen (Porty's choice) or Cruz, that type...

It sounds good... but I guess taxes in Italy are not helping us in this case either... (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif) (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Pato is not a Kaka'. He's not a ofensive-midfielder but a second-striker.

I think they mean in terms of value.

Ahhhhh,...taxes, taxes,...it seems like Italy has reinvented the taxes just a month ago! I mean, the taxes were there even before football was...

So suddenly everything stops cause of the Italian taxes...yupp... (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/ph34r.gif)
