Premier League: Alexandre Pato unsure about Chelsea future

Chelsea striker Alexandre Pato doesn't have any clues on his future at the club as incoming boss Antonio Conte has not communicated any decision regarding his playing staff. The Brazilian forward is on loan at Chelsea until the end of June. Another loanee, Radamel Falcao, was sent back to AS Monaco. Pato signed for Chelsea in January but was unable to make his debut before April due to fitness issues. He scored on his debut but then made just one more appearance until the end of the season.

The forward has a complicated situation as his contract with Corinthians runs out six months from now. He revealed that he would like to remain in England, at a London club if possible. "Chelsea has not given the player, me, or anyone any information regarding Pato's future," Pato's agent Gilmar Veloz said. "We received the news that Mr. Conte was revising the players in the squad, however, he did not contact Pato or me to talk about his future as well. For now, Pato's future is still in the open, Chelsea has the option to buy, but if they don't then we will begin looking for other clubs. As of the moment, we must first wait to hear the club's decision."

New boss Antonio Conte will take charge at Chelsea after the end of Euro 2016, where he is leading the Italian national team. It is believed that Conte wants to bring a new big-name striker at the club, with potential targets like Gonzalo Higuain, Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku. If one of these deals goes through then Pato will most likely be released as it would be very difficult for him to hold a place in the starting eleven.

Chelsea are 13/2 at Bet365 to win the Premier League next season.

    It's not looking good for Alexandre Pato, he must go in some new club, I think that he should go back in Italy, AC Milan would be good decision, they need some good striker and Pato may be the best solution, he was already there and he knows everything in and about Milano, so I think that would be very good choice for him. I wish him luck :)

    Well, I was disappointed that we didn't get to see more of Alexandre Pato for this half of the season that he was in Chelsea. They promoted his signing so good, that I expected he will get more room to play. And with even Falcao being injured, Remy in poor form.. But then Costa started scoring I guess. This guy still got it what made him a huge star back in AC Milan. Injuries prevented him from having huge career tho.

    Alexandre Pato, best player in Milano for one season, and than nothing, he lost his form. Injuries hindered him to progress like he should have. I hope he will get back on track, and continue raise form like he was in Milan season 2008-2009. Guus Hiddink must gave him more chance to prove himself, he deserve it, especially now when Chelsea is in crises.

    I dont understand why was he loan in Chelsea in winter becaus he didn get any chance to prove in Chelsea shirt, he only played two games and scored one goal. Chelsea season was awful so i dont get it why Hidink didnt gave him a chance and why he wanted him in team in first place.

    A huge suprise he signed in summer transfers for Villareal and only for 3 miilions of euro. He used to be really huge talent and played 3 solid season in Ac Milan but few bad desicions and few injuries really ruined him. I hope he will get back in track this year in La Liga.

    Pato was one of the best young players in the world a few years ago .
    I am sorry because he did not stay at a great level to play football . I think the main reason for are injuries. After that he never came back .
    Chelsea should give him another chance because he is a great footballer.
    Now he will disappear from the football world , unfortunately.
