Report: PSG to offer AC Milan €30m-rated midfielder in Paqueta swap deal

By Oliver Fisher -

Paris Saint-Germain will offer AC Milan the chance to sign Julian Draxler as part of a potential deal for Lucas Paqueta, a report claims.

Following Sunday’s defeat to Atalanta, Gianluca Di Marzio dropped the bombshell that PSG have concrete interest in Paqueta, with negotiations already well underway between the two clubs.

An update arrived on Monday morning from Fabrizio Romano who claimed that Paqueta is not opposed to the move, with the Rossoneri having set an asking price of €35m.

According to a report on MilanNews24.it, PSG are indeed serious about the idea of signing the Brazil international from Milan, having identified him as one of their main targets for next month.

Milan for their part are awaiting the right offer, which must not be less than the €38.4m paid to Flamengo back in January (as per MilanNews.it).

PSG’s sporting director Leonardo has hatched a plan though to try and tempt his former club into doing a deal. He is thinking of an equal exchange involving two players with a similar valuation, with Julian Draxler apparently the leading candidate.
