MN: ‘So many teams’ asked about Milan forward but Maldini removed him from the market

By Oliver Fisher -

The Milan management received offers for Rafael Leao over the summer but so far feel happy with their decision not to entertain them, a report claims.

Anto Vitiello’s latest for MilanNews stresses the importance of Leao who is able to change the game at any moment with his speed and trickery, either when starting or even coming off the bench just as he did on Saturday against Hellas Verona.

The Portuguese forward has found the environment to grow physically and mentally, he is beginning to show consistency and in some matches he has been devastating. The management decided to remove him from the transfer market in the summer, when ‘so many teams’ had knocked on Milan’s door to see if he was available.

One of the most requested Rossoneri players during the summer market was Leao, but Milan refused to sell him and never even opened to negotiations. The entire management has always been aware of his potential, having signed him for €24m plus Tiago Djalo as a counterpart in summer 2019.

After two years with flashes of brilliance but overall inconsistency, it feels like this is when Leao begins to show concrete signs of having taken the next step.

  1. Exactly. Hauge would’ve exploded in this current Milan squad and we even need him now that we are so much in dire need of depth. I wish we get him back

  2. I don’t get why people keep talking about Hauge as a great loss. He hasn’t really been that good for Frankfurt and they have almost the exact same team as when Andre Silva scored 28 goals last year.
    Don’t get me wrong, I think JP is a decent player with lots of potential, but Leao has exceptional abilities and must start every game on the wing. There a big chance that Hauge’s development would’ve been hurt by staying, IMO. Ofc noone could’ve predicted this amount of injuries.
