Journalist Carlo Pellegatti has suggested a name for the AC Milan management to look at in the event that winger Rafael Leao does leave the club during the summer transfer window.
There have been rumours in recent days suggesting that Leao is a major target for Paris Saint-Germain in view of the summer, given that Kylian Mbappe is destined to leave on a free at present.
While they may not be bulletproof in reliability, Footmercato stated that the Portuguese international considers his time at Milan to be drawing to a close after what would be five years, but he would prefer a move to England or Spain.
Pellegatti spoke during a video uploaded on his YouTube channel about who could potentially come in to replace Leao should something concrete materialise, and he named someone already linked.
“In the case that Leao leaves, who can be the replacement? I assure you that the substitute is there, he plays in the Premier League, who I have been talking about for years,” he began.
“He is just the right player, he is one of the very rare players who – in terms of fun, technical ability and entertainment – could perhaps replace Leao. I’m talking about Luis Sinisterra.
“Already at Feyenoord he was amazing, then bought by Leeds for 25 million. The English club were relegated and loaned him to Bournemouth.
“He has a contract expiring in 2026. The cost? He was born in 1999, I think he’s worth at least 25/30 million euros.”
Sinisterra is currently on loan at Bournemouth from Leeds United but there have been suggestions that they will try and make that a permanent move for the 24-year-old.
Then, it would remain to be seen what their response would be should Milan come in with a big offer, especially in the likely event it would mean Leao had been sold for a huge fee.
