Alexandre Pato set to complete Chelsea loan move

Chelsea are set to complete the signing of Brazil striker Alexandre Pato on loan, sources have told ESPN FC.

Sources told ESPN FC last week that Chelsea had lined up a move for Corinthians forward Pato as they look to bolster their attacking options.

Pato’s future has been the subject of speculation for some time with Corinthians ready to let the 26-year-old leave.

Pato, who has made 27 appearances for the Brazil national team, joined Corinthians from AC Milan in 2013 but spent the last two years on loan at Sao Paulo before returning to his parent club last month.
