Rafael Leao is demanding a salary of no less than €7.5 million per season to stay at AC Milan as talks begin to intensify around his renewal, a report claims.
As has been reported by Calciomercato.com today, the attention of the new ownership is turning towards the renewal of Rafael Leao’s contract.
The two goals that he scored in the derby against Inter on Saturday only served to remind everyone just how key he is and how important it is to extend his contract. He is currently earning €1.8m per season but he wants that upped to a whopping €7.5m.
So far, Milan have never offered anything more than €4.5m which with bonuses would have risen to €6m. That is the maximum figure that was imposed by the previous owners, Elliott Management.
It is now up to Gerry Cardinale at RedBird Capital Group to decide whether the player is worth distorting the wage structure for.
