Milan might fold under pressure from former Director Leonardo's charm for Paqueta.

Gianluca di Marzio via Sempre Milan is reporting that AC Milan are in advanced negotiations with PSG over their Brazilian midfielder Lucas Paqueta after just one calendar year at the club. Paqueta has been benched by current coach Stefano Pioli and the midfielder is apparently not happy to watch from the sidelines. Former Milan Director Leonardo has always been a fan of the Brazil international after bringing him to Milan and has been linked to him ever since he returned to Paris.

Milan are reportedly looking to sell Paqueta for at least what they paid to Flamengo which is 38 millio but would look for as good a deal as possible. The money from the sale could be used to reinvest into a regista as Ismael Bennacer is being considered for a more advanced role as a mezzalla as we noted here. The midfielder may be Milan's first sale given the existence of concrete negotiations.
