BRAZILIAN INTERNATIONAL LUCAS PAQUETÁ JOINS OL


Lyon, 30 September 2020


Olympique Lyonnais are proud to announce the transfer of Brazilian international Lucas Paquetá from AC Milan. Lucas has signed a five-year contract, i.e. until 30 June 2025.

Born in Rio de Janeiro, the versatile, 23-year-old midfielder trained at Flamengo before starting his professional career in 2016 with his hometown club. In three years, he appeared in 95 matches and scored 18 goals. On the strength of these stats, he was called up to play on the Brazil national team and be counted among the Brazil Serie A “Team of the Year” in 2018, one year before his friend and compatriot Bruno Guimaraes.

Member of the victorious Brazil national team in the Copa America 2019 with which he counts 11 caps, Lucas Paquetá was scouted by Juninho, who convinced him to join Olympique Lyonnais in the pursuit of the club's ambitious goals.


In January 2019, Lucas Paquetá joined AC Milan for a record €39 million. The left-footed attacking midfielder played 44 matches in one and a half seasons in Milan, scoring one goal.

Without waiting for the end of the transfer window, OL negotiated Lucas' transfer in the amount of €20 million, including a 15% earn-out on any future capital gain.


Olympique Lyonnais are very pleased to welcome Lucas Paquetá, the 22nd Brazilian player in the club's history following the arrival of Bruno Guimaraes last January, making him the sixth Brazilian in the current squad.
