It’s looking like the deal for Milan to land Lucas Paqueta from Flamengo is pretty much all but done.

On the subject of any impending transfer for Paqueta to Milan, the sporting director of Flamengo, Carlos Noval, told Tuttomercatoweb:

It’s not a done deal with Milan yet and we prefer to talk only when things are done and dusted.

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.

So while the headline of ‘not done yet’ may give Milan fans heart palpitations, it looks like everything is done except for some paperwork.
