CHELSEA are in the running to sign Brazilian sensation Alexandre Pato from AC Milan for �40million. But there's a catch.

The Serie-A striker will not be available until next summer so for the mean time, Ancelotti will have to make do.

Pato has scored 27 goals in 62 appearances for Milan. Internationally for Brazil he has managed 14 goals in 28 games.
