AC Milan have officially deposited the contract of defender Leo Duarte with the Lega Serie A.
He is yet to be official announced, but Dida has echoed the sentiments of his former team-mate and compatriot Serginho, insisting that he is great value for money.
The Brazilian is thought to have signed a five-year deal with Milan, and he looks set to replace Cristian Zapata as a centre-back option, with the Colombia international having left on a free transfer at the end of the season.
It has been confirmed now on the Serie A website that Duarte’s contract was officially deposited back on August 2.
