CM: €30m Milan midfielder not wanted by Rangnick – swap deal eyed

By Isak Möller -

Lucas Paqueta’s future is destined to be far away from AC Milan. The Brazilian midfielder, who has a contract until 2023 with the Rossoneri, has failed to impress and now the search for a buyer is ongoing.

As reported by Calciomercato.com, Paqueta isn’t well suited for the tactics that Ralf Rangnick wants to implement at Milan for next season. Therefore, they are likely to part ways in the summer.

Furthermore, given his age and potential, there are still suitors on the market. Milan invested €35m in the player in January of last year and there is now a chance to make a small capital gain, while he could also be offered in swap deals.

For this reason, among the hypotheses on the table, Milan are more inclined to favour the one that would bring Paqueta to Benfica in exchange for Florentino Luis. Fiorentina are also interested but their offer hasn’t attracted the Rossoneri’s interest.

However, there is an obstacle in the negotiations with Benfica as they value their youngster at €45m and Paqueta at €30m. Therefore, Milan need to convince the Portuguese side to lower their claims for the 20-year-old.
