AC Milan are ‘open to everything’ when it comes to Rafael Leao’s renewal because there is a ‘big problem’ that must be overcome, a journalist has claimed.
Speaking on TMW, the Sky journalist Luca Marchetti discussed the situation related to Leao and the potential of him signing a new deal, starting with the ‘huge underlying problem’ for which the Rossoneri must find a solution.
The fine to Sporting CP is the issue in question, and the club that chooses to take on this problem will become the favourite in the head of Leao. He is giving priority to Milan, but if he were to sign with the Rossoneri for €7m net per season, he would be playing for the first two years of the deal just to cover the fine owed to Sporting.
He would like to keep the money that he earns for himself and thus for his club – be at Milan or another side – to take care of the fine owed. Without this type of agreement, it would be ‘better for Milan to start an auction’ as per Marchetti, with the Rossoneri ‘open to everything at the moment’.
