The midfielder will now join up with his San Siro team-mates in January subject to a medical.

While Milan have been something of a fading force in recent seasons, it’s thought the club’s sporting director Leonardo played a key role in beating Europe’s elite to a deal.

Paqueta kicked off his first-team career at Flamengo in 2016 and has quickly become one of the hottest prospects in the country.

The star has now scored 17 goals in just 88 games from midfield and earned his first international cap from boss Tite earlier this year.

He made his Brazil bow against USA in New York in August, before also featuring in the game against El Salvador.

Paqueta is already Flamengo’s top scorer this season with nine goals.
