GdS: Milan put midfielder up for sale with €30m asking price – two suitors named

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have set their minimum asking price for midfielder Lucas Paqueta who could leave the club this summer, a report claims.

It has not been the easiest period for Paqueta over the last few months, with the Brazil international having struggled for game time under Stefano Pioli.

He started promisingly after his arrival from Flamengo last January but since Gennaro Gattuso left, things have gone downhill amid reports he is struggling with life away from football.

According to Sunday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), a sale is a plausible scenario. Milan, however, wants to derive a capital gain from the possible departure of the Brazilian and for this reason they cannot afford to collect less than €30million.

In January the player declined Fiorentina’s offer, convinced that he could relaunch himself at Milan, but in the summer his point of view on the idea of a move to La Viola could change.

In the meantime new suitors could join the hunt, with Benfica having long been on the trail of Paquetà, but who for the moment judge the economic demands to be too high.
