AC Milan turn down Paris Saint-Germain's £18m bid for Alexandre Pato - report

AC Milan have rebuffed a bid in the excess of €22 million (£18.2m) from Paris Saint-Germain for Alexandre Pato, RMC claims.

The ambitious French club have been linked with Pato since Carlo Ancelotti took charge of the team, as the 52-year-old worked with the Brazilian striker during his time at San Siro.

Ancelotti stated last week that he had no interest in Pato as Milan were uninterested in selling the player, who has been out of favour at the club this season.

However, fresh reports claim that PSG have made an initial offer for Pato, which was immediately rejected by Milan as the Italian champions will not settle for less than €30m (£24.8m).

Despite Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri repeatedly saying that Pato will not leave the club, speculation about an icy relationship between the two has been rife, after the Brazil international reportedly ignored the 44-year-old during Sunday's 2-0 win over Atalanta in Serie A.

The former Internacional star, who moved to Milan in 2007, has scored three goals in 13 competitive appearances this season.
