CorSport: Leonardo wants AC Milan star Paqueta at PSG

By Oliver Fisher -

PSG director Leonardo is considering raiding his old club AC Milan for midfielder Lucas Paqueta, according to a report.

The Brazilian left his role as the Rossoneri’s sporting director last month and subsequently returned to Paris where he worked before in the same role.

Links with Milan players have since followed, most notably the idea of a swoop for goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, but it appears Leonardo is keen on reuniting with his countryman Paqueta.

According to paper il Corriere dello Sport, Leo will try and capitalise on Milan’s ‘financial woes’ to try and tempt them into a deal.

In addition, he will attempt to exploit his rapport with the player, who he was instrumental in bringing to San Siro from Flamengo in January for €35m.

Paqueta has scored one goal and added two assists in 17 competitive games since his arrival.
