I did not want to believe it at first, but it seems like the rumours about AC Milan striker Alexander Pato joining French Club PSG are true. I am a big of the 22 year old Brazilian striker and feel that Milan would be making a big mistake if they let him go.
To be honest, i feel that if something is not done immediately about Allegri’s coaching tactics, then even more stars will end up leaving the club. First it was Ronaldinho who had to leave the club in spite of his stellar performances that helped Milan finish the 2009/2010 in 3rd spot and qualify for the Champions League.
Then Pirlo was forced to leave in the summer after being benched for much of the season for reasons only known to Allegri and now Milan’s top joint league scorer last season Pato could be on his way out of the San Siro.
According to his agent Gilmar Veloz, Pato has been offered a very lucrative deal that could see him re-unite with his former coach Carlo Ancelotti. Gone are the days when a club was built on a solid youth and scouting structure, all that matters now is money and PSG are intent on making use of every cent of their new found wealth.
Speaking to L’Equipe yesterday, Veloz admitted that PSG were becoming a very big club and that their seductive offers would become to hard to resist for many players.
“PSG are becoming a very big club. It’s all very seductive, but it’s not us who will decide,” Veloz said.
Meanwhile a seemingly distressed Pato has asked Allegri just how he should improve if he is to maintain a regular starting berth in his first eleven. Speaking to Corrie dello Sport, Pato said that he needed more guidance from Allegri on ways that he could improve.
“[Former coach Carlo] Ancelotti would come to me and explain what I had to do on the field of play,” Pato said.
“Allegri should do the same, he should tell me what aspects of my game I should improve.
“I do not want to judge what he told the press, because he is my coach and I have to respect it.
“It is true that I have to improve, but so do my team-mates. Every day you can do something more or learn something new.”
Milan Vice President Adriano Galliani has however denied the rumours linking Pato with a 50 million Euro January switch to PSG saying that he had not received any news from the striker regarding a move.
“I haven’t received any kind of signal as to Pato wanting to leave or [PSG sporting director] Leonardo wanting to sign him,” Galliani was quoted as saying by Gazetta dello Sport.
