Another suitors has now come forward as AC Milan look to resolve the future of Rafael Leao over the summer, according to a report.
Today is Leao’s 23rd birthday, one which he can celebrate with a Scudetto in the bag after he helped the Rossoneri cruise to the finish line, racking up 3 goals and 6 assists in the final 6 games of the league season.
Calciomercato.com report how RedBird Capital and their main man Gerry Cardinale want to follow up on the work done by Elliott Management in continuing the journey back to being one of the elite clubs in Europe again, with Leao seen as a player to build around.
Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara made a first offer to Jorge Mendes in February of €4.5m net per season plus bonuses but now the request gravitates towards €6.5m per season plus bonuses, however the feeling is that a meeting point can be found.
After a meeting between Mendes and Barcelona, the Spanish newspaper Sport report that the Blaugrana are interested in the winger but it is difficult to transform into something more, given their financial situation.
