AC Milan are set to relaunch their attempts to secure the renewal of Rafael Leao as the green light has arrived from Gerry Cardinale, a report claims.
Claudio Raimondi spoke on SportMediaset (via MilanNews) about the situation related to Leao, confirming that the winger should soon receive a new extension offer from Milan worth €6m net per season until 2027.
This is an exception to the internal salary ceiling set at Milan after Gerry Cardinale’s approval, while the journalist added that there is also talk of raising the release clause up to €250m, compared to the current €150m.
Milan want to move forward with Leao as a protagonist because they know they have a special talent on their books that deserves to be paid as such. Leao has the same agent as Renato Sanches, namely Jorge Mendes, and pleasing Leao could make life a little easier in talks over the midfielder.
