Di Marzio: Milan and Leao ‘continuing to work’ on renewal in ‘climate of serenity’

By Oliver Fisher -

Gianluca Di Marzio has once again given a reassuring update on the talks over the renewal of Rafael Leao’s contract between the player’s entourage and the management.

The future of Leao continues to attract speculation in the media with a wide range of reports about how far along the negotiations are over a possible contract extension given that his current deal expires in June 2024.

There was even a brief war of words in the media when an article from La Gazzetta dello Sport suggested there had been a breakdown in talks between Milan and Leao, which caused the club to officially respond and deny the ‘damaging’ rumours, before Leao’s lawyer Ted Dimvula provided further reassurance.

Di Marzio spoke to Sky about the future of Leao and the negotiations with Milan for the renewal if his deal, with his comments relayed by MilanNews.

“Between Milan and Leao there is a climate of serenity. The negotiations are going on, they are continuing to work to reach an agreement. It’s certainly not a matter of hours, but things are proceeding in great serenity,” he said.

  1. Well… With milan limited money, they always work and work again. Never done they work… Times running out, at the end the player walk out for free. As always..

  2. Get Leao to fill in a contract renewal with terms that he want. Sign it and and give to MILAN BOSS. All its left is Milan boss to agree and signed it by 31st August to be effective the same day.

    Stop talking and ask that greedy boy to name a price and commit to it. Stop all the ding ding here.

    1. And a year from now he’d want a raise. And the performances would drop too. But at least then Milan would have the leverage – if the clause weren’t dropped to 80M€ or so.

  3. Leao is not so good. Napoli have 2 strikers with much better performance and they don’t request such a big salary. Inter have Lautaro and he is better striker then Leoa, and still doesn’t have salary request as Leao entourage.
    If Leao don’t sign until the last game of this season, Milan must put that not so good player on transfer list, and wait to see all offer. Best offer in cash Milan must accept and say to Leao – thank you and good luck.

    Tha we can bring couple serious signings such as: Okefor, Pulisic he would play in Milan like Tomori. And than we can bring some names on free transfers as well. We can buyout Brahim Diaz etc..

    And finish this stu*I’d story about average player contract and his debt such Raphal Laoe.
