Pato nearing return to action
AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato could return to action this weekend.
Pato has missed Milan's last three league games through a thigh injury sustained earlier this month.
Vice-president Adriano Galliani said: "Alexandre is very well and could even play on Saturday against Parma. At least that is what the team doctors have told me."
Pato's return will be good news for AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri, with his side having claimed just one win in their last four Serie A games.
Milan lie fourth in the standings, two points behind league leaders Inter Milan after five rounds.
