Record: How much Leao will have to pay Sporting CP as Milan court verdict arrives

By Oliver Fisher -

News has emerged for Portugal about the solution that has been reached between Rafael Leao and Sporting CP to finally settle his case.

According to Record (via MilanNews), the Court of Milano have finally made a ruling in the past few hours on the issue between Leao and his former club, as the winger terminated his deal with Sporting after an incident at the training ground involving an attack from ultras.

Leao will have to pay Sporting an amount of €16.5m in compensation – a figure that, with interest, will go beyond €20m – but there is a repayment plan in mind. The Portuguese forward will in fact have to pay 20% of his salary to the Portuguese team every year.

He currently he earns €1.5m net per season, so that would mean €300k per year, but of course with the talks over his renewal ongoing the repayment will have to be factored in to negotiations.

  1. OMG, now we will see how strong is the desire of the owners and management to keep him with us. It is normal to ask for much better salary even above 6 mil.

  2. I’d pay him up to 7 milion even if this issue never existed. we need to keep him for at least another year and defend our title. plus we already have too many changes going on within the squad so I don’t think Maldini will have time to find a suitable replacement for our most influential attacker.

  3. WTF?? How can you blame the player for this kind of action? Why he hasn’t sue the club for lack of security or something? F*ck sporting, greedy club

  4. AC Milan Just pay that 16,5m euro for leao but asking him to accept salary 4m euro nett/ season . That win win solution

    1. There is a clause in the contact – signing fee bonus. We can offer it also as you said. Mbappe choose to stay at PSG because of the huge signing bonus.

  5. Agreed. Give him the 16M as a signing bonus and lock him up. We cannot let him leave now. We finally are back to wining and selling him would be taking two steps back. Pay his fine (as we are partly responsible as is Lille as we knowingly signed him w this issues outstanding) and build around him. With a proper CAM and RW he will score 20-30 goals a season for fun
