Interviewed by Gazzamercato.it, the agent of Brazilian midfielder Lucas Lima, Edson Khodor, talked about the possibility of seeing his client in the famous Rossoneri colours.
“Milan wanted Lucas Lima already in August,” he began. “But Santos wondered too much and in the end they went for other less expensive targets. But in January the deal may open again.
“There are several interested parties: PSG and Valencia have followed and appreciated him. Lucas Lima would like to play in Serie A. A great club like Milan you can not say no…
“The words of Serginho on him? We read also in South America, the words of a champion like Serginho, we can not thank him enough. If he says so well that Lucas Lima is a great player, we are happy.
“Possible negotiation with the Chinese consortium? The Chinese love Brazilian soccer players. Many of our talents play in China. However as far as we know the needed negotiations have been conducted by the Chinese already in the summer.
“Therefore, the interest for Lucas does not change. Indeed now Milan have the economic strength, if you will, to close the deal.”
