Interesting transfer news are out and it has been reported that Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is attempting to close a deal for AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato.
Local newspapers have reported that Ancelotti has delayed his arrival at Chelsea to try to push through the signing of Brazil star Pato.
It is believed that AC Milan is expecting to meet Blues officials in the next 24 hours to negotiate a deal for the young striker.
Ancelotti officially started his new job as Chelsea boss yesterday but is understood to be in Milan while talks with his former club are ongoing. Chelsea have already had an offer of £31million turned down for Pato, 19.
Ancelotti is desperate to have the striker in place before pre-season training starts next Monday and AC Milan sources claim that the club will only sell for a figure nearer to £40m although it is believed that Chelsea are unwilling to pay that much.
At the same time, Ancelotti is determined to add a cutting edge to his new team’s play and has specifically asked for Pato.
