AC Milan winger Rafael Leao has confirmed that he is happy at the club and also spoke about his idols plus his most difficult opponent thus far.
Leao is having a fantastic season and has been decisive in the last two victories that have put Milan just four points away from capturing their first league title since the 2010-11 season. After scoring the winner against Fiorentina earlier this month, he set up Sandro Tonali twice for a brace in the 3-1 comeback win over Hellas Verona on Sunday.
The Portuguese forward is under contract until 2024 but there has been intense speculation about a possible extension of that deal with a pay rise, as well as rumours of interest from clubs abroad.
Leao spoke live on his Instagram profile, answering some questions from the Rossoneri fans, and his comments were relayed by MilanNews.
