Flamengo: Duarte joining Milan

Flamengo boss Jorge Jesus has confirmed that defender Leo Duarte is on his way to Milan.

Milan have agreed an €11m deal for Duarte, who should arrive in Italy early next week to sign a five-year contract with the Rossoneri.

“I’m sure Duarte will become a Milan player, it’s all done,” Jesus told Radio Brasil.

“He’s preparing for his move to Europe. I wish him all the best.”

The 23-year-old played 60 times for Flamengo, scoring two goals, and had been a teammate of Inter loanee Gabriel Barbosa.
