Alexandre Pato joins Villarreal on four-year deal from Corinthians
Villarreal have signed Alexandre Pato from Corinthians on a four-year deal.
Pato's contract with Corinthians was set to expire in December, allowing him to negotiate a free transfer with any club, with the Brazilian club selling their stake in him last week.
The 26-year-old played 62 games for Corinthians, scoring 17 times, while appearing in 101 matches and collecting 38 goals in two years at Sao Paulo.
He played just two matches in five months while on loan at Chelsea last season, scoring once.
