GdS: Investcorp’s mission is to get Leao’s signature amid PSG interest – the latest

By Oliver Fisher -

Rafael Leao is attracting the interest of some top clubs from around Europe but AC Milan’s probable new owners are planning to lock him down, a report claims.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) report that Leao is becoming more and more decisive for the current Milan and will also be at the centre of Investcorp’s new project. The Bahrain-based fund will complete the acquisition of the Rossoneri in the coming days and one of the first things they will do is look to tie Leao down long-term.

The paper adds that the winger has been in talks for some time to extend his current deal (expiring in 2024) until 2026. The parties have been talking about it for some time and an agreement seemed to be one step away, but the Sporting CP legal battle and the arrival of some very high offers such as one from PSG slowed things.

New meetings and contacts will therefore be needed, in which the Milan offer will start again from €4.5m net per year until 2026 which is triple what he earns now. The former Lille man has never hidden that he is happy at Milan and that his will is to continue at the club, so the responsibility will pass to Investcorp soon to get pen on paper.
