Lucas Paqueta reveals why he chose Milan

Lucas Paqueta spoke to Brazilian media about his future transfer to AC Milan, also revealing his his jersey number.

New AC Milan signing Lucas Paqueta has ended his career in Brazil and in a few days he will join Gattuso’s side. The Rossoneri paid 35 million euros for his services and the expectations surrounding the 21 year old attacking midfielder are certainly high among the Red and Black supporters.

The Brazil international left Flamengo on tears in his last match at the Maracana stadium. After the game he gave an interesting interview to Globoesporte where his transfer to AC Milan took central stage.

“If I chose the Rossoneri is only thanks to Leonardo. He called me and convinced me immediately, I have to thank him. I want to talk only with you, he told me. And I found it very important everything he told me during the conversation, I thought it was all good for me, for Flamengo, and for my family, everything. “

The most important thing is that Milan has a serious project for my career. For a young Brazilian who moves to Europe is the thing that matters most and Milan gave me ample assurances. It’s the best choice I could make and I can not wait to start this new adventure.

Jersey number? I asked to have the number 39, the same with which I debuted in the first team at Flamengo and that brought me so much luck“, concluded the young star.
