Corinthians president Roberto de Andrade said he "prays day and night" that he can sell former AC Milan forward Alexandre Pato, who is currently on loan at Sao Paolo.
Lazio have shown interest, according to reports in Brazil, and the Italian club are willing to invest €9 million ($31.4 Brazilian reales) to buy the 25-year-old, who did not live up to Corinthians' expectations and after one season was loaned out...
Lazio have rewarded their coach Stefano Pioli for a successful first season in charge by extending his contract by a year until 2017.
Pioli guided the Biancocelesti to a third-place finish in Serie A and a berth in the Champions League playoffs in August. Last season, the Aquile finished ninth and they were not being considered by many as candidates for a place in Europe next season.
