Rafael Leao is currently under contract with AC Milan until 2024 and the Rossoneri are working on extending that agreement. The winger himself has now spoken about the matter, admitting that eventually he wants to move abroad.
Leao was named the best player in Serie A last season and he has continued to do well this campaign. Therefore, it’s not exactly a surprise that Milan are working on a contract renewal, but it’s proving to be very difficult.
Speaking to the Portuguese radio station RDP Africa (via MilanNews) Leao made it very clear that he has a contract with Milan and thus is focused on the Rossoneri. However, he also admitted that he eventually wants a new experience.
“Experience in a new league? Yes, in the future. Now I’m focused on Milan, with whom I have a contract. I like the city a lot. Milan is a top club, a historic club. I’m living one of the best moments of my career,” he stated.
It remains to be seen how the negotiations will end, but it’s clear that Milan will have to make a significant effort to get the yes from Leao and his entourage. It might be worth it, though, considering his qualitites.
