Clubs are beginning to show an interest in signing Rafael Leao but the winger is happy to snub them all and remain with AC Milan, a report claims.
Leao has exploded this season after an inconsistent first couple of campaigns, racking up 11 goals score plus 6 assists across all competitions in 2021-22 so far and reaching a consistent level of performance in the process, becoming the leader of the attack in many ways.
MilanNews writes how PSG and Manchester City have expressed an interest in Leao but his renewal with Milan is only a matter of time. The former Lille star should pen an agreement to extend his deal until 2026 with a pay rise and it will become official when the legal battle with Sporting CP is definitively resolved.
Through a video-reel posted on his Instagram account, Leao talked about his move to the Rossoneri in the summer of 2019: “Milan revealed their interest in me. When Maldini calls you, I couldn’t refuse. And I took up the challenge.”
In other words, Leao did not snub the call of Maldini before and he is not going to do so this time, with a new deal now just a matter of time.
