By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have officially confirmed that Leo Duarte has departed the club on a permanent basis, joining İstanbul Başakşehir after an initial loan.

Through a statement on their official website, Milan have announced that Léonardo Campos Duarte da Silva has joined İstanbul Başakşehir on a permanent basis having spent the last 18 months on loan with them.

The club went on record to wish Léo all the best for the future in his personal and professional life, bringing to an end an association with the Rossoneri which began back in 2019 after his arrival from Flamengo.

In the end he made just seven appearances for the club and mostly during times of defensive crisis, joining Başakşehir on loan with the option to buy back in January 2021. He impressed sufficiently for them to pursue a permanent deal, and an agreement was found between the parties after the initial option expired.
