Terry urges Chelsea to net Pato as Pirlo drops Blues hint

<!--StartFragment--> CAPTAIN John Terry yesterday urged Chelsea to do what it takes to bring AC Milan wonderkid Alexandre Pato to Stamford Bridge.<br /><br />The 19-year-old has admitted he would be interested in a move to west London, following the tracks of his former Rossoneri mentor Carlo Ancelotti.<br /><br />Pato is believed to be unsettled by fellow Kaka&rsquo;s world record switch to Real Madrid, but would command a whopping &pound;40m fee.<br /><br />Terry, however, is impressed by recommendations of the Brazilian striker from David Beckham and Andriy Shevchenko and believes Pato, who moved to the San Siro from Brazilian club Internacional for &pound;19.6m two years ago, would be a valuable addition to the Chelsea ranks.<br /><br />&ldquo;I&rsquo;ve heard some great things about him and how good a player he is, so it will be brilliant if Chelsea could sign him,&rdquo; the England captain said.<br /><br />&ldquo;It&rsquo;s great to hear he wants to talk to the new manager. I want Chelsea to be linked with the best players in the world, as I&rsquo;m sure the fans do, and he&rsquo;s definitely one of those. He&rsquo;s fantastic.&rdquo;<br /><br />Milan now fear the high-profile departures of Ancelotti and Kaka could spark an exodus to west London with Andrea Pirlo and Clarence Seedorf also touted.<br /><br />Indeed, Italian ace Pirlo did little to end the speculation yesterday when the 30-year-old quipped: &ldquo;Me at Chelsea? Let&rsquo;s see. Maybe not now, but we will see.&rdquo;<br /><br />At 34, a move for Seedorf looks less likely, although the Dutch star admitted he was flattered with the link. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s beautiful news, that Ancelotti wants me in London, but next year I will still be playing for Milan,&rdquo; he said. &ldquo;I have a contract with Milan and I am a player of Milan. Here I am well.&rdquo;<br /><br />Chelsea have, however, been warned off any move for Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero with the club&rsquo;s sporting director Jesus Garcia Pitarch commenting: &ldquo;The club has no desire to sell the player, even if his buy-out clause is met.&rdquo; <!--EndFragment-->
