Léo Duarte has spoken about moving to Milan, saying Lucas Paquetá’s words were important for him.

Duarte is one of the two new summer signings of Milan who haven’t been called-up by their national teams for this round of international football.

As a result, Léo gets to have more attention from coach Marco Giampaolo who has already made it clear that the starting center backs for now are Romagnoli and Musacchio. The 23-year-old will try to convince Giampaolo that he deserves space.

“Milan have a beautiful history, it’s a great club, many famous Brazilians passed here like Kaká, Serginho, Cafu and Thiago Silva… I hope to follow in their footsteps,” the ex-Flamengo man said in an interview that was released on Wednesday with Sportmediaset.

“Reuniting with Paquetá [the two played together in Brazil]? I talked to Lucas to find out what it was like [at Milan] and how it worked His answers were convincing and very positive. They made me even happier and more motivated to be here today.

“Italian football? Brazilian football in itself does not have as much tactics as there is here, but I was working with Jorge Jesus who is a European coach who has a lot of knowledge. He helped me a bit and now I want to improve with the language to understand better the requests of the coach.”
