Ex-Chelsea striker Alexandre Pato set to join Orlando City

Former Chelsea and Inter Milan striker Alexandre Pato is set to join American club Orlando City as a free agent. 

Orlando posted a teaser on their official Twitter account, sharing a pair of Tweets containing a picture of a duck. Pato means 'duck' in Portuguese and now it is believed the announcement could be made this weekend with the forward set to sign a one-year contract. 

The 31-year-old's lengthy club career includes stints at AC Milan, Chelsea, and Villarreal, as well several Brazilian teams and Chinese club Tianjin Tianhai.

He will become the latest Brazilian to sign for Orlando, a club where Kaka played from 2014 to 2017. There are currently four other Brazilians currently on the team's roster in Junior Urso, Ruan, Antonio Carlos, and Matteus Aias.
