Man City ready to pay 40m pounds for Lucas Paqueta

Man City are interested in signing the Brazilian midfielder Lucas Paqueta this summer.

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder has a release clause of 40m pounds and Man City are set to trigger it

Pep Guardiola is interested in signing the highly rated Brazilian after seeing his performances for Flamengo. The 20-year-old midfielder has scored 6 goals and created a further five in 41 matches for Flamengo.

Paqueta is one of the most talented players in Brazil right now and he could prove to be a shrewd acquisition for the EPL giants. 

Pep Guardiola signed Gabriel Jesus under similar circumstances and the transfer has worked out pretty well for them. The Etihad outfit will now make their move to Paqueta. They certainly have the resources to pull off the transfer.

 Man City have been linked with Jorginho this summer as well. It seems that Guardiola is looking to add to his midfield ahead of the start of next season.
