CM: Paqueta’s time at Milan drawing to a close – the truth about Valencia and Lyon interest

By Oliver Fisher -

Lucas Paqueta’s days at AC Milan are numbered and while there are two clubs interested, it seems that everything relies on sales.

Paquetà is out of the Milan project. Yesterday at the pre-Bologna press conference head coach Stefano Pioli confirmed this, admitting that the Brazilian’s technical characteristics are not very compatible with what he is asking for.

According to Calciomercato.com, Paqueta’s future – barring surprises – will be far from Italy. No option must be excluded, but today it is difficult to think that Fiorentina would rekindle interest, for example.

LaLiga side Valencia have been kept informed in recent days, under the supervision of Jorge Mendes, but the Spanish club do not have great financial resources and therefore cannot afford large investments.

Milan want to try and raise €22-23m from the sale of Paquetà to avoid registering a capital loss. Paquetà is a big target for their sporting director Juninho Pernambucano who needs to sell before making an offer.

Memphis Depay (set for Barcelona) ​​and Jeff Reine-Adelaide, (wanted by Hertha Berlin and Rennes) are the main candidates for a sale, so in the coming days we will know more.
