GdS: Chelsea remain admirers of Milan star as contacts have never stopped

By Oliver Fisher -

Chelsea remain the club who are expressing the most interest in signing Rafael Leao ahead of the summer, according to a report.

This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reports how Milan are still pushing to try and get Leao to agree a renewal with Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara offering €6.5m net per season until 2027 to try and convince him.

This is four times what the Portuguese forward receives at the moment and would be a commitment worth close to €50m when factoring in the gross payments. However, Leao himself suggested before the Atalanta game that he wants to wait until the end of the season before making a decision.

In the event he does not renew – which is now an increasingly probable hypothesis – the club will be forced to sell to the highest bidder. Chelsea remain in the front row just as they were last summer, and the Blues have never ceased contacts with the entourage of the former Lille star.

  1. C’mon, do people really believe that Chelsea Is still interested in Leao?
    They made an offer in the summer and it was not reported that they came back and tried again in the winter.
    They spent 50 mil on Sterling last summer and up to 100 mil on Mudryk (just a month ago).
    2 players that play in Leao’s position, plus they already have a deal in place for the summer for Christopher Nkunku. Another player who predominantly plays in Leao’s position.
    Their owner is recklessly spending money but IMO Chelsea is out of the picture for Leao.

    1. You never know, they are buying players randomly. What Milan should focus is buying players from Chelsea. Kovacic for under 30M and so on…

  2. C’est maintenant ou jamais de le vendre s’il refuse de prolonger !!! Au lieu de le perdre gratuitement !!!
