Brazilian international striker Alexander Pato was spotted at the Stamford Bridge stand on Wednesday when the Blues took on Portuguese outfit FC Porto in the UEFA Champions League. The Brazilian has been heavily linked with a move away from the Brazilian league with the Premiership touted to be his next destination as he bids to return to Europe after an injury hit first stint in Europe with AC Milan.
Tottenham and Liverpool have been touted as Pato’s likeliest destination but he was seen at the stands at Stamford Bridge and the fact that he was seen in London attest to the fact that the Premier League could indeed be his next footballing destination.
The 26 year old Brazilian has fellow countrymen Willian, Kenedy, Ramires and Diego Costa and Oscar featuring for the Blues so it could be excusable to say that he came to cheer them on. Pato joined Brazilian side Corinthians from AC Milan for £12.18 Million and scored with his first touch, the Brazilian is quick, agile and creative with excellent technical ability. He was considered as one of the World’s most promising young footballing stars in his youth.
The 26 years old Brazilian is a very dynamic striker with a good goal scoring records. Liverpool, Arsenal, Spurs and even Manchester United have been reported to have interest in the former AC Milan striker; it would be interesting to see where the striker ply his trade come January; the major concern though would be his injury prone nature.
