AC Milan were expected to announce the renewal of Rafael Leao after reports of positive talks, but as of yet nothing official has arrived.
La Repubblica (via MilanNews) report how the renewal of Leao seemed to be all done and dusted and instead the long-awaited signing is slow in coming. The paper speculates that the reason is not the dispute with Sporting CP, but rather it seems that the €4m net per season salary put on the plate by the Rossoneri is no longer enough.
Because of this development, is not excluded that in the coming weeks some clubs will try their hand to poach Leao from the Diavolo, but a very high asking price has already been set given the immense potential of the Portugal international.
The report continues by adding that Paolo Maldini wants €90m if Milan are to let go of the former Lille man, given how difficult a task it would be to replace him.
