CM: Mendes to take over as Rafael Leao’s agent

By Isak Möller -

Joining from Lille this summer, Rafael Leao has been one of the few bright spots for AC Milan thus far this season, challenging Krzysztof Piatek for a spot in the starting eleven. 

The Portuguese striker was signed for a figure of around €25m (via Transfermarkt) from Ligue 1 side Lille, impressing the management with his quality at just the age of 20. He has been heavily involved in the last three games, even though two of them were lost.

Last time out, when Genoa were in the lead, he came on at half-time to turn things around as he won the penalty which Kessie scored the winner from. Of course, his performances haven’t gone unnoticed.

As Calciomercato.com’s Daniele Longo reports, Leao is set to switch agents from Nelson Almeida to the super-agent Jorge Mendes, who is known for having all the big Portuguese prospects. The switch should materialize in November, Longo adds in the replies.
