This week is supposed to be the week that finally sees Rafael Leao put pen to paper on a new contract with AC Milan, and the teaser video for the new home shirt seemed to confirm it.
Today’s edition of Corriere dello Sport (via PianetaMilan) talks about the renewal of Leao’s contract with Milan. The beginning of May, in fact, was decisive in reaching total agreement between the parties worth €5m net per season plus bonuses until 30 June 2028.
There was even an agreement found between Lille and Sporting CP over the fine, while the winger’s release clause will be raised to €175m. In the next few days the signature and official announcements will arrive.
Leao continues to be a leader on the field for Milan, having matched the impressive numbers of last season, but the fact that he features heavily in the teaser video for the 2023-24 home shirt – which comes out tomorrow – tells its own tale.
“When you wear this shirt, the only path is that of the future. Milan cannot be separated from Milano, a city in continuous evolution and constant progress,” the video said, something which Leao’s intentions match.
