CM: Maldini needs sign from RedBird over Leao amid €90m Chelsea bid and Man City interest

By Oliver Fisher -

RedBird Capital hold the key to Rafael Leao’s future as his price continues to rise and interest continues to grow, a report claims. reports that Leao’s demonstration on the biggest stage of all (two assists in two Champions League games so far) adds an extra dynamic to the talks over the renewal of the contract expiring in 2024.

Over the summer his agent Jorge Mendes asked Milan for €7m net per season for his client to renew, but that amount destined to increase with the passing of the months and while he continues to be decisive for Stefano Pioli.

At the moment there are no new meetings planned with the leadership of the Rossoneri, who are also waiting for signals from the new patron Cardinal to understand if there will be the funds made available to satisfy Leao and his agent, by which time the demands could be €8-9m per year.

Time is running out and threats are becoming more and more concrete, as Chelsea offered €90m towards the end of August and Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are lurking. Maldini is relying on the will of the player, but also needs some signs from RedBird.

  1. Start a bidding war for January with the clause he finishes the current Serie A campaign. Money for a replacement and a RW with time to adapt.

  2. Longer we wait the price just keeps on going up. Sign him asap. We have the benefit of the “growth decree” and should use that to our advantage – as a 7M net deal w the growth decree is not 7M net for us out of pocket but less. Procrastinating will only cost us more $$$ – and without Leao our offense is average.

    1. Absolutely, at this point of our project we HAVE to keep our stars, imagine next season with a 20+ goal young ST, Leão, De Ketelaere and sadly probably still Saladmaker (to be fair not bad recently) but nonetheless our attack would be taken to another level

  3. 9m 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Cos of 2 assists in champions league?

    If that dude request for anything more than 7m, sell him immediately, that money should be given to Maldini and in two years we all will be glad we did sell….leao have not entirely convinced anyone, so mended should calm down

    1. “leao have not entirely convinced anyone”

      Now now… You’re going to upset a few guys here with that kind of comments. You’ll soon feel their wrath on you. You might experience name-calling too. 🙂

  4. Let’s see Napoli game lets trust our players Milan is team not one man show like some ppl say when u talk about it say someone was better than someone rather than saying this guy single handedly won us the match
