Watch: Paqueta clarifies depression rumours and transfer talks

By Nikita Fesyukov -

The transfer market is officially over and one of the names most linked to a departure from AC Milan was Lucas Paqueta.

The Brazilian midfielder, who asked coach Stefano Pioli not to be called up for the Rossoneri’s match against Brescia in the middle of the month, was reportedly on the radar of PSG, Juventus and Fiorentina.

In the end, however, the former Flamengo man’s departure did not materialize and he will stay at the San Siro at least until the summer. After the end of the transfer market yesterday, Paqueta wrote this post on his Instagram page:

“I want to thank for all the messages I received in the last few days. I want to clarify my situation. Thank God there was no depression, no chest pain or a desire to return to Brazil or pressure for a meeting,” he wrote.

“I want to thank all those who supported me and care about me. I’m fine, I will continue to give my best, working seriously to try to achieve my goals and always help Milan. Thank you all,” Paqueta added.
