Alexandre Pato is set to spark a transfer rush after confirming he will leave Sao Paulo at the end of his loan spell in January.
And with parent club Corinthians keen to sell the former AC Milan star it looks like he could be on the move in January.
“I will not stay in Sao Paulo next year. I watched an interview with [interim Sao Paulo president] Leco and he said it is very difficult to sign me,” Pato told reporters after Saturday’s 3-0 win over Sport Recife.
“I want to help Sao Paulo in this final stretch, these five very important games, because I want to put the team into the Copa Libertadores.
“I see no problem. I’m a professional and I have to always do my job. I want to devote my best to them and go on vacation with a feeling of accomplishment.”
The Brazilian striker has linked with a host of European sides, including Barcelona, Tottenham West Ham.
