Journalist Carlo Pellegatti has revealed that he is not totally at ease regarding the renewal of Rafael Leao’s contract with AC Milan.
During a column for MilanNews, Pellegatti revealed that he is ‘a little worried’ about the negotiations concerning Rafael Leao for numerous reasons. Firstly there is the ongoing dispute with Sporting CP which means he will have to pay them a figure of over €16m, and then there is the hiring of a new figure – one ‘like a lawyer’ – which ‘seems to be wanted by his father’.
In the background there is still the agent Jorge Mendes who knows how to get good moves for his client, and there ‘are all elements that do not leave me calm’, Pellegatti adds.
Above all, he ‘would like to understand what the intentions of the powerful Portuguese agent are’ with regards to the Portuguese winger, because the contributions that Leao made towards the end of last season in the Scudetto win certainly raise the stakes in the talks over extending his contract.
