Flamengo director of sport Carlos Noval confirms negotiations with Milan for Lucas Paqueta. “It can be finalised in two weeks.”
The 21-year-old trequartista reportedly agreed a move worth €35m plus bonuses, with Globo Esporte claiming he had already undergone a medical todayahead of a January switch.
“It’s not a done deal with Milan yet and we prefer to talk only when things are done and dusted,” Flamengo director Noval told Tuttomercatoweb.
“We are talking. Negotiations are on-going, but as far as we are concerned, they are not closed yet.
“I do think it can be finalised in two weeks, though. It should be a couple of weeks, yes.”
The €35m fee would make Paqueta the most expensive ever transfer from Brazil to a Serie A club.
It would also allow Milan to beat competition from Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool.
