Paqueta to AC Milan not done yet maintain Flamengo
Lucas Paqueta's proposed move to AC Milan is not completed yet, according to Flamengo's Carlos Noval.
Flamengo director of sport Carlos Noval denied AC Milan have reached a deal to sign star Lucas Paqueta, though he believes a transfer could be finalised in "two weeks".
According to reports, Serie A side Milan have agreed a €35million deal to sign Brazilian attacking midfielder Paqueta in January.
The 21-year-old – with two Brazil caps to his name after making his Flamengo debut in 2016 – has also been linked with Liverpool, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.
Noval, however, said Paqueta's proposed switch to Milan was not completed yet.
"It's not a done deal with Milan yet and we prefer to talk only when things are done and dusted," 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."
Paqueta has scored 17 goals in 88 appearances for boyhood club Flamengo.
The Brazil international – who made his international bow against the United States in August – is Flamengo's leading scorer this season with nine goals.
