Stamford Bridge boss bids to nab one of his former star performers.
Carlo Ancelotti is ready to make a renewed attempt to snap up AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato this summer. The former AC Milan boss is keen to take advantage of the fact that the San Siro side are currently without a manager and believes he could lure the Brazilian away from the Italian club as they enter another period of uncertainty.
Chelsea are reportedly looking for new long term attacking options and have previously attempted to sign the talented 20 year old but are now ready to up their bid to around £48m. Silvio Berlusconi will however remember the anger that resulted in the club’s decision to cash in on Kaka last summer and may well try to hang on to the youngster.
However Pato will have become increasingly upset as he has seen Leonardo sacked and has himself sensationally been overlooked by Dunga and will miss out on the upcoming World Cup. All of these events may conspire to leave the former Internacional man thinking about a possible exit.
If the speedy intelligent striker makes it clear he wants to move to Stamford Bridge then AC Milan may have little choice than to take the money rather than be stuck with an unhappy player.
