After being named the Serie A MVP last season, Rafael Leao has continued his excellent form into the new campaign having scored three goals in the first five games.
MilanNews recall how Leao gave an extraordinary performance in the Milan derby with two goals and an assist for Olivier Giroud along with many top-level plays. He is the real match-winner of the side, but the issue of his renewal must soon be tackled.
Milan have every intention of holding onto him for a long time, and will soon propose the renewal of his contract due to the deadline being June 2024. Otherwise, the rumours of interest from top clubs in Europe will persist.
Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara must therefore make a new attempt to get the Portugal international to commit his long-term future to the club, and the report mentions that the starting point for the negotiations will be around €6.5m net per season.
