Milan will reportedly consider loaning Alexandre Pato to another club in January, while the Brazilian will miss the Juventus game.
Stories on Friday are suggesting that a definite sale is unlikely to happen after Christmas because Pato’s asking price has dropped drastically given his recent injury problems.
However, a loan is possible with a number of Brazilian sides ready to give him the chance to re-find some form.
Meanwhile, Pato won’t take on Juventus at San Siro on Sunday evening.
The forward picked up a knock in the game against Anderlecht on Wednesday which, although not serious, will see him miss out this weekend.
