There is the possibility that Lazio and AC Milan will discuss a deal for Rafael Leao this summer, according to journalist Alessandro Jacobone.
It seems as though Leão’s future is yet to be written, as the Portugal U21 international is coming off the back of yet another season in which he alternated an excellent first half of the campaign with a poor return after Christmas. This has led to speculation that he could leave the club this summer for the right offer, with a number of mercato rumours doing the rounds.
According to the latest from Alessandro Jacobone on Twitter, new Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri is a big admirer of Leao and Jorge Mendes – who was in Rome days ago – has a great relationship with Lazio president Claudio Lotito.
He adds that sources in Rome are talking about a potential market axis between the Rossoneri and the Aquile, which could fuel the rumours that Luis Alberto may come the other way.
