Flamengo General Director confirmed that midfielder Lucas Paqueta is set to join AC Milan in the January transfer window.
Bruno Spindel confirmed that they received at least ten offers from other teams, but AC Milan submitted the best one.
“The Rossoneri are a big club, Kaka has made history at the club and Leonardo and Maldini are two important reference points. Milan is the right city for Paqueta to improve a become a top player. Many Brazilian footballers have done well there. The agreement was quick to reach, AC Milan called me on the 6th of October when I was in Orlando and the deal was closed on the 9th.”
“Playing in Europe is a dream for many footballers and we couldn’t offer Paqueta the same conditions of AC Milan. We hope he will help us to win the title before he leaves.”
Now, according to Sky’s Peppe Di Stefano, Lucas will arrive in Milano at the start of December, following the conclusion of his domestic campaign in Brazil. He will train with the team for a month prior to becoming eligible which will allow him to acclimate to Gattuso’s tactics.
