By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan winger Rafael Leao has revealed that the call of Paolo Maldini was influential in convincing him to join back in the summer of 2019.

Leao arrived from Lille and after promising but inconsistent campaigns in his first two seasons, he has exploded this year, netting 11 goals and adding 6 assists across all competitions. Now there is talk of him being worth €50m+, and on Instagram he gave some background on his arrival.

Milan revealed their interest in me. When Maldini calls you, I couldn’t refuse. And I took up the challenge.”

  1. Weird how many players can’t turn down Maldini when he calls about a transfer but can turn him down when he calls about a contract extension 😉

    1. All player that turned down maldini offer extension contract are player that given contract or buying by Fassone mirabelli. Kessie and lord Hakan buying by fassobelli, while donnarumma from salary 250k euro given new contract 6m euro by fassobelli,don’t forget Romagnoli are given 6m euro salary by fassobelli. This crap CEO and DS signing player or give contract extension just based on money power that make AC Milan fall on huge debt. Paolo Maldini buy and give contract extension based on talk like best friend /big bro that make player feel AC Milan like their home and family

    2. Only 3 players who turn down Maldini extension contract and now 2 of them looks dumb in their new club. Expect cashie plays like shit at Barca.
