Milan defender Duarte for Basaksehir

Milan defender Leo Duarte is reportedly on the verge of a transfer to Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir.

According to multiple sources this evening, including Tuttomercatoweb and, a deal is practically done.

It is expected to be a six-month loan to the end of the season.

Duarte has barely played in the Rossoneri jersey over the last year, but he still has a contract with the club until June 2024.

The 24-year-old was signed from Flamengo in the summer of 2019 for €10m, but made just nine competitive appearances.
