It would appear that there has been a bit of movement on the Alexandre Pato front with news today that Chelsea have informally shook on a deal to bring the Brazilian striker to Stamford Bridge this month.

ESPN Brazil, who are keeping tabs on the whole thing for us (not personally, you understand), are reporting that Chelsea have struck a “verbal agreement” with Corinthians over the transfer, thought to be worth around £12million.

This coming after Corinthians coach Tite publicly stated that the transfer was merely a matter of days from going through last week.

According to a previous ESPN report, Pato is due to sign a £1.77million-a-year contract at Chelsea, which equates to around £35,000-a-week. Whether that’s before or after tax is anybody’s guess.

Stay tuned muchachos.

    They sell Lukaku, Mata, fire Ancelotti, Mourinho and then get PATO, someone who’s not wanted in his homeland and hot and beautiful Brazil because he is lazy as fuck (now imagine this guy away from home in the Premier League, playing in the rain and learning another language). I really don’t understand Chelsea and I am sure they don’t know what they are doing.

    Falcao, Pato, Torres, Shevchenko…. if you know another forward who can’t kick a ball anymore, please recommend him to Chelsea. Abramovic shall pay good money.
