Paqueta: Why I’m joining Milan…
Lucas Paqueta confirms ‘I’ll wear the No 39’ for Milan and that he chose the Rossoneri because ‘Leonardo convinced me right away’.
Paqueta will arrive in Milan this week to complete his transfer from Flamengo, and the young attacking midfielder believes the Diavolo are the ideal next club for him.
“I’ll wear the No 39. It’s the number with which I debuted in Flamengo’s first team,” he told the Brazilian Press.
“It brought me luck and I hope the same happens at Milan. If I’ve chosen the Rossoneri, it’s thanks to Leonardo.
“He called me and convinced me right away: I understood Milan had a serious project for my career and that’s essential for a young player who arrives in Europe.
“I can’t wait to start.”
