Ahead of Sunday's clash against strugglers Liverpool, Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has dismissed reports that Brazilian wonder kid, Alexandre Pato is on his was to Stamford Bridge.

The 21-year-old Brazilian international, is one of world football hottest prospects and has been linked with all the major teams across Europe since he emerged as a 17-year-old at Brazilian side International.

‘The Duck’ as he is affectionately known has an impressive record for current side AC Milan.  To date, he has 83 appearances with 40 goals.

Transfer speculation has increased after the unrest in the AC Milan camp, especially amongst the strike force.

Milan’s current on-loan striker Zlatan Imbrahimovic from Barcelona has been creating unrest in the team after stating who would be his preferred line up team mates.

However, links with Chelsea were strengthened due to the fact Pato had worked under Ancelotti before he became manager of Chelsea.

Personally I don’t see this transfer happening due to the enormous transfer it would take for an accepted bid and the fact that Pato has admitted that he is happy in Milan.
