Real Madrid are interested in signing Rafael Leao but AC Milan are planning a counter-move to protect him long-term, according to a report.
Diario AS report that Leao’s current contract ends in 2024 and he has a release clause of €150m, but after a season in which the Portuguese winger was absolutely fundamental in the Scudetto win, there is the desire to increase that further.
Milan have already contacted his agent Jorge Mendes to discuss a contract extension and negotiate an increase in his clause to €200m or even €250m. However, Los Blancos know that Marco Asensio and Luka Jovic are two players that Milan like a lot and as such they could offer them up as counterparts to lower the price.
The former Lille man is very happy at Milan however and wants to continue his adventure with the Rossoneri, but if Real Madrid did make a concrete offer that the management wanted to accept, he would not say no to joining Real Madrid.
