"I have heard from Pato, he is highly motivated because he has solved all his problems," the defender told the official Milan website, acmilan.com.
"The future attack has to be built around him: he is a great champion, but he is young and still has plenty of room for improvement.
"The attack is being focused around the name of Pato."
However, he may have to contend with a San Siro newcomer after chief executive Galliani promised to find a worthy replacement for Ibrahimovic, with the likes of Carlos Tevez and Edin Dzeko touted as possible arrivals in recent weeks.

"There is time until August 31."
Galliani also dismissed talk that Robinho might be allowed to leave.
"I told the directors of Santos that I am not selling him and that he will remain at Milan," he said.
