CorSport: Milan face delicate Leao situation as Real Madrid, Man City and Chelsea probe

By Oliver Fisher -

Three big names are interested in signing Rafael Leao from AC Milan and securing his renewal will be difficult, according to a report.

According to Corriere dello Sport (via PianetaMilan), Leao has already attracted the attention of several elite clubs such as Real Madrid, Manchester City and most recently Chelsea. However, Milan have not received any offers yet and there have only been tentative enquiries with the player’s entourage.

Milan’s position on Leao is always the same: he will not leave in this summer transfer market and the only way to get him is to pay the release clause of €150m included in his contract, one that could soon change.

Milan want to renew Leao’s deal but his representatives are asking for a €7m net per season salary including bonuses. Agreeing to these requests would mean exceeding the internal salary ceiling by quite a lot, but the good news is the player wants to stay.

Despite the stance regarding the release clause, the Rossoneri would have to evaluate any offers they received for Leao should it become clear he will not renew, but they will only sit at the negotiating table if a figure of €80-90m is officially put forward.

  1. Sell him! Won’t ever be higher value than right now.

    That said, pretty sure these rumours are absolute twaddle with no basis in reality; none of those teams need a left winger this summer, if they’re talking to him it’s about lining up a free transfer in two years’ time
