The Brazil attacker joined the Rossoneri for €35 million ($57.7 million) from Flamengo in January 2019 and initially impressed, scoring once in 13 appearances in his first half-season in Serie A.

But Paqueta failed to find the net at all last season and started just 12 times in the league.

Milan has now cut its losses and allowed the 23-year-old to join last season's UEFA Champions League semi-finalist Lyon on a five-year deal.

Having been an unused substitute in Milan's first two games of the new season, Paqueta was presented in France on Thursday (AEST).
