AC Milan has announced the signing of Lucas Paqueta from Flamengo for a reported fee of €35million.

The Brazil international has agreed to a five-year contract with the Rossoneri and will join up with his new team-mates when they resume training on Monday following Serie A's mid-season break.

 

Milan sporting director Leonardo confirmed last October that a deal had been agreed in principle with Flamengo, although they needed to wait until the January transfer window opened to finalise the move.
