Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has made it clear to Paolo Maldini that he will not be trying to sign AC Milan forward Rafael Leao this summer, a report claims.
As has been reported by Corriere della Sera (via Milan News) today, Milan fans can rest assured that the Spanish and European champions will not be trying to prise Leao away from them any time soon.
Ancelotti and Milan technical director Maldini are long-term friends from their shared time with the Rossoneri. The Italian coach has reassured his friend that Real Madrid are not prioritising a move for Leao.
This makes it easier for Milan to fill out their primary objective which is to tie him down to a new contract as soon as possible.
Milan’s latest offer for the player is a €4.5 million salary but it is thought the player and his entourage may want more than that.
Maldini and Frederic Massara also need their own deals extended first.
