Lucas Paqueta has thrown his AC Milan future into doubt after he asked not to play in the latest Serie A game against Brescia.

Brazilian attacking midfielder Paqueta joined the Rossoneri back in 2019. The 22-year-old has struggled since his arrival from Flamengo for almost 40 million Euros.

Paqueta has been labeled the next big thing to come out of Brazillian football. But the youngster has struggled to cope with all the hype and attention.

There has been speculation surrounding his future of late, with PSG rumored to be potential suitors.

Today’s announcement from Milan director Ricky Massara on Sky Sports Italia will only add fuel to the fire.

He said:

“He is a great professional and a very sensitive lad.”

“At this moment, he is going through a difficult period.”

“He isn’t at his best.”

“So discussed it with the coach and decided it was best he remains to train and focus on getting back to his best.”
