CM: Milan protected by huge release clause in Leao’s contract – the background

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are protected by a release clause that will prevent Rafael Leao from leaving for less than a huge amount, according to a report. talk about how the 22-year-old put the team on his back in the decisive part of the season and guided them to the Scudetto, with 11 goals in the league and 10 assists in a campaign that was far more consistent than his first two at the club.

A fundamental deail must always be taken into consideration with regards to Leao’s future because there is the presence of a release clause in his contract agreed at the time of his transfer to Milan from Lille which is set at €150m.

Several European clubs have asked his agent for information through his agent Jorge Mendes but at the moment Milan remain confident of reaching an agreement with the winger to extend his contract until 2026 and give him a well-earned pay rise too.

        1. i would want us to keep him crorossonero but in case that he wont renew then yes then if we can sell him at a very high fee id reinvest the cash into the team instead and especially if we could fetch 100+ mil but its only in worst case scenario that i would accept such choice.

    1. Exactly, although as other have pointed out it runs to 2024. Still, your sentiment is correct: he should be sold for max value THIS SUMMER if he doesn’t renew THIS SUMMER, because in 2023 he will suddenly say that he doesn’t want a new deal and will wait to leave on a free. Clubs should always renew or sell at the two years left mark (unless the player is not in demand) if they want to maximize value. Otherwise you are asking for another Donnarumma, Calhanoglu or Kessie.

  1. Pls step up his wages. We need a strategy to chase away these vultures always circling around our key players

    They will come knocking for Kalulu Tomori, Leao, Theo and even miagnan in the coming future

    1. Im sure they will but kalulu and tomori has contracts lasting til 2025 and theo renewed his contract in february untill 2026 so they can have as much interest in those players as they want as we are in no need to sell either of them. Leao though needs a quick renewal and kalulu will most likely be renewed in the next month or two if media reports are to be believed,

    2. it is their agents, not necessarily the players who “rattle the chain”, I am sure after scoring that goal, winning the Scudetto, and contract ready at Barca. he is having his doubts……and his agent could care less, he gets his pound of flesh.
