Flamengo know Lucas Paqueta will leave in the near future and so, as the vicepresident Ricardo Lomba told Jornal Extra, the Brazilian club are looking for a replacement in his position for next year.
Paqueta has a contract until December 2020 and a release clause of 50 million euros. With the money already taken from Real Madrid for Vinicius Jr, Flamengo can head to the market and sign themselves a star player.
Despite Lomba saying Flamengo have not yet received a formal offer for the 21-year-old midfielder, the club are convinced they cannot keep him with European giants calling. Barca and PSG are vying for his signature.
