A deal to bring Alexandre Pato to Stamford Bridge is still very much in the works, however, Guus Hiddink has reservations about bringing the striker to Stamford Bridge.

As reported by Sky Sports News’ Paul Gilmour, via Twitter, he reveals that Hiddink is wary of the possible risks involved with bringing the former AC Milan striker on board.


The Brazilian has been playing in Brazil since 2013 and has not featured in a competitive match since November. As well as this, he has a torrid injury record that has followed him throughout his career.


The tweets suggest that a deal could be imminent. Previous reports have suggested that personal terms have been agreed with the striker, with a deal reportedly worth around £8m on a three-year contract.

Due to the reservations that Hiddink has, he may pursue a loan deal which is still reportedly a possibility.

The arrival of the Brazilian could push Loic Remy out of Chelsea, the striker only came on the bench against Arsenal to replace the injured Diego Costa.
