Former Milan attacker Alexandre Pato will not be Serie A-bound after agreeing to join Sao Paulo.
Gazzetta dello Sport reports Pato has signed a contract until December 2022 with Sao Paulo and paid €2.5m to release himself from Tianjin Quanjian.
However, he will not be able to play competitive matches for the Brazilian club until the end of April, when the new Brasileirao campaign starts.
The 29-year-old had been linked with a return to Milan, where he scored 63 goals in 150 appearances earlier in his career.
The move also marks his second spell with Sao Paulo, having played for the club on loan between 2014 and 2015.
