Barcelona give up on Brazilian in-demand hotshot

    According to the Italian publication, Calciomercato, Barcelona have abandoned the track that leads to Lucas Paqueta, with Manchester United and AC Milan remaining as the two potential suitors.The 21-year-old midfielder, who can cover multiple roles in the second third, including the one behind the strikers, has been one of the most exciting players to perform in the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A over the last couple of years.Only this season, the skillful playmaker has appeared in 21 league games, notching six goals and providing two assists, which has ultimately been rewarded with his first call-up to the Brazil national team.The Blaugrana already signed two Brazilian starlets last summer, as Malcom and Arthur arrived at the Camp Nou from Bordeaux and Gremio. However, it seems Ernesto Valverde won’t be rushing back into the market after securing the services of Arturo Vidal.The same source states that the Rossoneri could be Paqueta’s next destination, considering how desperately they need a playmaker to feed Gonzalo Higuain and Patrick Cutrone, as Hakan Calhanoglu and Suso both failed to leave up to expectations this year.
