Tuttosport: Leao Milan’s Scudetto weapon – his market value rockets with renewal ready

By Oliver Fisher -

Rafael Leao is considered by many to be Milan’s most important weapon in the Scudetto race, and that is reflected in his new market value.

The Portuguese forward has speed and a frightening ability to beat his man on the dribble making him one of the most electrifying players that Milan have seen in recent years, with the exponential growth of his market value.

Tuttosport (via SempreMilan.it) have published a report on Leao and remark how in the latest Transfermarkt update, the former Lille man has seen his valuation increase by €15m from €35m to €50m, which means Leao has the second-highest growth in Europe this season behind only Gavi of Barcelona.

Milan are obviously looking to secure his long-term future with a contract renewal, and an agreement is in place but still not signed due to the €20m compensation that the Court of Arbitration for Sport sentenced Leao and Lille to pay Sporting CP.

After the situation has been resolved, the player will sign his renewal as an agreement was found on the basis of an increase in salary to €4m net per season with the deadline shifting from 2024 to 2026.
