AC Milan have officially confirmed the signing of Flamengo and Brazil defender Leo Duarte.

Duarte arrived in Milano last Wednesday and had the first stages of his medical in the afternoon, before he underwent further tests on the Thursday morning.

The Rossoneri will reportedly pay a fee of €11m to Brazilian side Flamengo for the 23-year-old, who has signed a five-year deal with the club.

Duarte becomes Milan’s fifth signing of the summer after Theo Hernandez, Rade Krunic, Rafael Leao and Ismael Bennacer.
