There is movement on the Lucas Paqueta front. As of now, the Brazilian doesn’t have a position in Stefano Pioli’s system, unlike Suso who is the replacement for Castillejo. Therefore, today’s meeting with his agent is a clear signal.
As MilanNews.it states, Milan paid €35m for the player just one year ago, and now they are looking to offload him for at least €27m in order to avoid a loss. However, given that he isn’t playing, the Rossoneri don’t have much time on their hands.
Should the midfielder leave, then it could open a door for Milan on the transfer market, per the report. There has been a lot of talk about Dani Olmo, but the San Siro side could also decide to go for a central midfielder like Florentino.
Today, there was a meeting with the Portuguese’s agent at Casa Milan. Collecting money from Paqueta’s departure would certainly help them in the negotiations with Benfica, economically speaking, replacing him with a player that fits the system better.
