Sky Italia are reporting that AC Milan's Lucas Paqueta is very likely to leave in the January transfer window as he is being chased by PSG and Bayern Munich as we reported here and as he has lost his role in the squad. Paqueta is apparently unsettled in Milan and is battling some mental health issues as he has not fully adjusted to his move from Brazil to Italy about a year ago. The report from Lucca Marchetti also notes that Milan and Juventus briefly discussed a potential swap move between the Milan outcast Paqueta and Juventus outcast Federico Bernardeschi but the clubs valuation were some distance apart.
Sky : Rumours are circulating about a Lucas Paquetá and Federico Bernardeschi exchange for the moment the two clubs denies the rumors. Federico Bernardeschi's salary is 4 million euros.— TeamMilanAC (@TeamMilanAC) January 23, 2020

Although the swap deal seems to be out of the question, there seems to be an acceleration in exit talks for the Brazilian as he does not seem to be happy in Milan and simultaneously the manager and management do not seem to have faith in him anymore. Paqueta was purchased for 35 million euros last winter mercato but has failed to play convincingly since.
