GdS: Potentially decisive meeting over Leao’s future imminent – the position of both sides

By Oliver Fisher -

The AC Milan management are continuing to work on the renewal of Rafael Leao and they have a very important meeting on the agenda, a report claims.

According to this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (as seen below), Milan will hold a new meeting with the entourage of the Portuguese forward within 10 days or a maximum of 15, hoping to make substantial progress after what has been a long and drawn out saga.

The feeling is that in the next meeting everything will be defined in one way or another but there is a certain optimism that filters from Milan’s side regarding the positive conclusion of the negotiation.

If it were entirely up to Leao though he would have probably already signed by now, however there are a number of different players at the table including lawyer Ted Dimvula and agent Jorge Mendes, who could look to ‘seek fortune somewhere else’.

Milan are now in a hurry and therefore a conclusion should be reached within the next two weeks. Either Leao will renew or he will be sold in the summer, though for now no concrete offers have arrived.

The €16m fine owed to Sporting CP is hanging over the entire negotiation as Leao wants some help from Milan in paying it plus a €7m net salary and a signing bonus, while the Rossoneri are offering a slightly lower salary with other bonuses linked to personal and team targets, but without participating in the payment of the fine.

  1. For me, these report have been superfluous for several months now. It is pretty obvious that he is going to move away from Milan.

  2. Please just sell this clown. He never wanted to renew and now he’s not even doing anything on the field either. Cash in while there is still some interest by rich clubs.

  3. “The feeling is that in the next meeting everything will be defined in one way or another”
    Wanna bet that you’ll be saying the same thing a year from now?
    We’ve seen this movie before.

    1. How do you figure this? Leao is the selfish one. His contract demands are basically saying. I left a team I shouldnt have, and now I want you to pay for my mistake.

  4. If you search for Match 2022 its probably the same reports that Leao wants to stay and Milan is “Confident” that he stays. Sell

  5. Let’s pretend for a second that Milan offers him the 7.5M€ (flat, without bonuses) and he accepts. Does he perform according to this salary or keep walking on the pitch?

  6. he went to lille for free and got sold for 28m and a player from Milan so lille should assist him to pay Lisbon not Milan, but I know Milan will be stupid not to sell him and go for free like his predecessor.
