AC Milan's Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato expects to see out his contract with the Serie A champions at the very least.
The 21-year-old had been linked with a move to Chelsea and UEFA Champions League new boys Napoli, but has three years yet to run on his current deal.
A 2007 signing from Internacional, Pato is in Beijing preparing for Milan's Italian Super Cup encounter with city rivals Inter on Saturday.
He said: "I'm sure I will stay with Milan until 2014. I'm not sure what will happen three years later - I think I'll wish to stay at Milan by then too."
Milan have a wealth of attacking options, with Pato in direct competition for places with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Robinho, Antonio Cassano and veteran Filippo Inzaghi.
