Pato: Manchester United tried to sign me before the transfer deadline

Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato have revealed that Manchester United were keen on securing his signature towards the end of last month.

The 26-year-old, who battled injury throughout his previous stint in Europe with AC Milan, has been in sparkling form since returning to his homeland in 2013.

Two hours before closing I had a very nice offer from Manchester United. I was expecting it, but I only knew after when they commented. But my focus now is here. I am working to do my best and possibly stay at Sao Paulo.
