Brazilian leaves San Siro.
AC Milan’s Brazil international striker Alexandre Pato agreed a four-year deal with world club champions Corinthians on Thursday, the Brazilian side confirmed on their website.
“In the coming days, Pato, who will wear the number seven shirt, will undergo a medical and then sign a four-year contract,” said a club statement.
The 23-year-old Pato joined Milan from Internacional in 2007 and played 117 times for the Italian giants.
But his time in Serie A has been hampered by a series of fitness problems — last season, he played just 11 times.
Pato will hope to re-ignite a career that had been stalling at AC Milan in recent seasons following an encouraging start to his time at the Serie A giants when at times he was considered one of the hottest young prospects in world football.
