Milan have won the race to sign Brazilian starlet Alexandre Pato.

The 17-year-old also had offers from Chelsea, Real Madrid and Internazionale - but he and his father have opted for Milan.

It is reported that Milan will pay his club Internacional just short of £10million for his services.

Milan confirmed the deal in a statement, revealing he will become their player in January.

Statement

"The highly-talented Alexandre Pato will train with Milan and will be able to play friendly matches from September 3, 2007.

"From January 2008, he will be eligible for competitive games."
