Well, according to his agent Gilmar Veloz, Milan starlet Alexander Pato is not going anywhere. Currently Milan’s top scorer, Pato’s contract with the Rossoneri runs out in 2014. Pato has attracted a lot of interest from Europe’s elite clubs with Chelsea and Real Madrid showing a keen interest in the Brazilian international
“Chelsea and Real? These are only market rumours,” Veloz told calciomercato. “There is nothing true. He has a deal with Milan and he feels good in Milan.”
These reports come ahead of a crucial weekend fixture against Catania at the San Siro. Milan are 3 points off the title race pace set by arch rivals Inter and they know that they have to avoid anymore slip ups if they are to win the scudetto.
However, Milan have a rather easy fixture in Catania and they will be keeping their fingers crossed hoping that Fiorentina can beat leaders Inter Milan at the Stadio Artemio Franchi tomorrow to significantly cut down their advantage.
Meanwhile, second Placed AS Roma welcome Atalanta to the Stadio Olimpico in a match that everyone expects them to win. Roma will also be hoping that the Viola can keep their end of the bargain and defeat Inter. If Inter lose and Roma win,the Nerazzurri will be pushed down to second place level on points with their rivals Milan (that is if Milan beat Catania).
Not since 2004 has the title race been so tight. That year, Milan and Juventus were neck and neck in the League and it all came down to the last day of the season. With 6 games remaining, all the three clubs have a shot at the title.
