MN: Dimvula in Milan and Mendes in Madrid – the Leao power of attorney issue

By Oliver Fisher -

Rafael Leao’s future continues to attract a lot of speculation and one of the key points of contention is who will actually carry out renewal negotiations.

MilanNews writes how Leao is busy in Qatar with Portugal, hoping to beat Morocco tomorrow and reach the semi-finals of the World Cup in what is his first taste of the biggest tournament in the sport. Meanwhile, negotiations over his renewal continue far away from the Middle East.

Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are at work trying to lay the right foundations and then, when the player returns to Italy, they will try to close everything in the coming month. However, the double power of attorney makes things difficult.

Leao’s lawyer Ted Dimvula has already been at Casa Milan together with Maldini and Massara in recent days to sign the first professional contract of Victor Eletu, a youngster from Ignazio Abate’s Primavera side that scored yesterday in the friendly against Lumezzane. It is not known with certainty when this meeting took place, but what is certain is that they spoke face to face.

In the meantime, rumours have come from Marca in Spain regarding Real Madrid’s refusal after Leao’s agent – Jorge Mendes – offered the winger to them. There are many pieces of the puzzle of Leao’s renewal, but for now the player is focusing on his adventure in Qatar.
