AC Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani has sent a pretty strong message concerning the rumored transfer of Alexandre Pato to Paris Saint-Germain in January. It's not happening. Today on the Milan Channel, Galliani left little doubt where his club stood on the rumors swirling around the Brazilian striker:
"There is no negotiation going on with Paris Saint-Germain for Pato."
"There has been no contact with the player and none between us and PSG. There is no truth in it. I've been trying to tell the newspapers as much, but they don't believe me."
That's pretty straightforward if you ask me, thought I doubt it will stop speculation from continuing anyway about Pato's future with the Rossoneri. Most of this of course all started thanks to Pato himself hinting at a fallout with Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri and his agent Gilmar Veloz telling L'Equipe his client would be interested in a potential move to PSG.
That's how rumors get started people!
Galliani also mentioned that his club is continuing their pursuit of Manchester City outcast Carlos Tevez, saying they are "just waiting for the negotiations to unblock". That's not really news at this point though.
