PSG still chasing Alexandre Pato

Big spending French side Paris St Germain are still hopeful that they can persuade Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato to move to France this summer.

For several months, the AC Milan striker had been linked with a move to the San Siro but PSG failed in their efforts to persuade the forward.

At this time Paris St Germain have slipped further behind Montpellier; who are currently top of Ligue 1, and subsequently the capital club are now considering their options for a busy transfer window this summer.

PSG manager Carlo Ancelotti admitted that a move for Pato could be on the cards: "Pato was one of our targets in January, and remains one of our transfer targets for the future.

"It's true that he has been injured a lot, but I still consider him to be an extraordinary talent who can prove himself to everybody."
