Last campaign however, the 26-year-old only managed to accumulate two appearances for Chelsea in the Premier League, although he did net a solitary goal.

Pato’s transfer was closed officially on Tuesday morning with the player now officially a Villarreal player. He will be looking to replicate the performances he put in for Milan that helped make his name in European football.
