“The Rossoneri are a big club, Kaka has made history at the club and Leonardo and Maldini are two important reference points. Milan is the right city for Paqueta to improve a become a top player. Many Brazilian footballers have done well there. The agreement was quick to reach, AC Milan called me on the 6th of October when I was in Orlando and the deal was closed on the 9th.”
