AC Milan are growing more and more concerned about the form of Portuguese forward Rafael Leao with a lack of goals and influence characterising his season so far.
As has been reported by Milan News, the concern is that the ‘real Leao’ has disappeared as he continues to deal with various changes, such as the change of agents between Ted Dimvula and Jorge Mendes.
There is constant pressure from the club and his family to perform and be the real leader in the team and the insinuation is that it is a bit too much for him to handle right now.
Due to his immense talent, he has still got three goals and four assists in Serie A this season, but everyone knows that it could and should be more.
There is now added competition for his place in the team with Noah Okafor’s arrival, so Pioli does have the option of dropping him if needed.
