Former AC Milan striker fancies Far East challenge


Alexandre Pato is set to turn down offers from three Premier League clubs to try his hand in China.

According to The Sun, Chinese Second Division side Tianjin Songjiang are keen on the 25-year-old former Ac Milan star.

The club are managed by Vanderlei Luxemburgo, former coach of Brazil.

Pato has spent the last couple of years in South America, first with Sao Paolo, and currently with Corinthians.

Reports in Brazilclaim he could move to Asia in a deal worth about £400,000 per month, and a deal has been accepted.

Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea are all said to be keen on the player.

But it seems likely he will snub a move to England.

He would hardly be alone in China, with fellow Brazilians Luis Fabiano, Robinho and Ricardo Ghoulat all currently plying their trade their.

Pato was close to joining Chelsea before Jose Mouriho was sacked, and he was in the stands watching their Champions League clash with Porto.

United were reported to have made a move for him in late summer, and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp likes the player too.
