CM: Leao sends signs to Milan over renewal on social media – two issues affect the timing

By Oliver Fisher -

Rafael Leao is certainly not agitating for a move away from AC Milan and some messages on social media seem to prove it, a report claims.

Calciomercato.com report that Leao has sent signs to Milan that he wishes to continue his development with the Rossoneri, something that the management obviously want too but which inevitably passes through him signing a new contract with a big pay rise to around €6m net per season.

The final green light will be needed from the next owner Gerry Cardinale, who should complete the purchase of the Elliott fund club by September, while the moment of transition at the corporate level is playing a role in the market strategies and therefore also renewals.

The ongoing dispute with Sporting CP and the payment of the fine of €16.5m also weighs on the Leao affair, and that in addition to the takeover issue is lengthening the timespan for a meeting between the parties to get to the heart of the extension talks.

RedBird for their part want to give further impulse to the project which Elliott Management started, one foreseeing the return of the Rossoneri to high levels in Europe, and retaining the best player in Serie A is therefore a mandatory step.

Leao meanwhile never misses an opportunity to reiterate his strong attachment to Milan, as seen during his recent Twitter interaction with Davide Calabria during which he confirmed a desire to win more Scudetti.

  1. Well, that depends if these cheapskates, actually make an effort to renew his contract with a substantial offer – like 6m net.

    If not, then go-bye-bye πŸ‘‹ for free… as usual.

  2. Exactly! Milan management never expected to win the league this soon.

    Their mindset was to have a competitive team to reach top4, and nothing more. The rationale behind this is:

    1. To keep players, by giving the chance to play in CL.
    2. To make minimal, increments in terms of salaries.

    ‘Hey guys, we can’t offer much, because we are rebuilding a team for the future (old talk), so stick with us, and we will win the league – one day, and offer better salaries and recruit competitive players. ”

    With winning the Scudetto, they are totally unprepared to do the needful. It now begs the question why the summer budget was not factored in the” Red Beard” contract?

    Oh well, we will see by ending of next month were we stand.

  3. Milan almost gave kessie 6mil, almost gave donnarumma 7 or 8 mil. But 6 mil for a player that can assist and score goal is reasonable. I know after this some ftards will said he just got 1 good season. Yeah that 1 good season has crowned us scudetto after 11 years.
