Alexandre Pato has reassured AC Milan that he has no plans to quit the club amid reports of a move to Napoli.
The Brazil international has been linked in the Italian press with a switch to Milan's Serie A rivals in an exchange deal that would see midfielder Marek Hamsik move the other way.
However, Pato insists he wants to see out at least the remaining three years of his contract at the San Siro.
He said: "I want to become a symbol at AC Milan and be an important player in the history of the club.
"I have a contract until 2014 and I will not leave Milan for any other club.
"I would like to remain here as long as possible until they get fed up with me."
The 21-year-old, who joined Milan in 2008 from Internacional, scored 14 goals in 25 league appearances last season to help AC Milan win their first scudetto since 2004.
