MN: Paqueta’s farewell a certainty – Lyon’s interest is concrete with a loan also possible

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are looking for a way to offload Lucas Paqueta before the end of the window as he does not fit into their plans anywhere, a report claims.

The Brazil international had a difficult 2019-20 campaign during which he failed to score a single goal, which has led to suggestions that the management no longer deem him part of the plans and he could be sold this summer, something Stefano Pioli confirmed in his pre-Bologna press conference.

According to MilanNews, if until a few days ago the question was: “Will Paqueta leaves?” the current question becomes: “Where will Paqueta go?”.

It is unthinkable that the player could stay with the Rossoneri beyond October 5, especially given the risk of devaluation given that he almost certainly will not feature.

Lyon’s interest is concrete and could materialise between now and the end of the transfer window, but it is clear that an accommodation will have to be found regardless of the Ligue 1 club.

If the right cash offer does not arrive, it could also make sense to accept a formula on loan, in the hope that the play can find himself again at another club.
