Juni Calafat, Real Madrid’s head scout, is said to be keeping a close eye on Lucas Paqueta, a 23-year-old Brazilian midfielder.
Lucas Paqueta appears to be very much in Real Madrid’s orbit heading into the summer transfer season, according to an exclusive report from Spanish website Defensa Central. Juni Calafat, Los Blancos’ head scout, is keeping an eye on the 23-year-old Brazilian midfielder.
Since joining Lyon from AC Milan last summer, Lucas Paqueta has rejuvenated his stalled career. The 23-year-old made quick work of establishing himself as a staple in midfield for Les Gones, making 34 appearances in all competitions and scoring 10 goals and providing six assists.
Real Madrid will almost certainly pursue a central midfielder during the summer transfer window, and with good cause. Due to the brilliance of the first-choice three of Casemiro, Luka Modric, and Toni Kroos, the Merengues have been sorted in the midfield area for years.
