SM: Leao aware of PSG interest – Milan will ‘not be flexible’ on price

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will not budge when it comes to the price that they will demand for Rafael Leao amid reported interest from Paris Saint-Germain, we have been told.

According to what Matteo Moretto has told The Daily Briefing – which is part of our network Rocket Sports – Milan will ask for Leao’s €175m release clause to be paid in full if he is to depart the club in the summer.

The journalist did confirm that the Portuguese winger has been made aware of PSG’s interest in view of the 2024-25 season, given that the Ligue 1 giants will likely lose Kylian Mbappé and thus need an attacking reinforcement.

Moretto told The Daily Briefing that negotiations between Milan and PSG have not yet begun and the management of the Rossoneri will ‘not be flexible’, meaning they will point to his €175m clause if the approach.

Of course, the Ligue 1 champions will probably try to bring the price down by opening talks, and they will hope that the player is tempted by the move too.

Milan are able to enjoy some leverage regarding the former Lille man given he signed a contract extension with the club until 2028 last year, which included an increase in his buy-out figure.

  1. 50 million Milan paid, only for transfer fee for Leao.

    29.5 million was gamble to bring him, and make him a player. 20 million more Milan paid for contract termination to Lille.

    Of course that Milan needs to request 170 million for his departure transfer .
    Whole team is created in the way that club can keep Leao and Theo, and have very strong left side.

  2. Anything north of 140m he needs to go. He’s not even worth that and has shown to me that he’s a good player but won’t ever be world class. Can do a lot with that money

  3. Honestly if 120+ mil comes in, we need to accept it. We can easily use that to grab a promising winger like gudmundsson and another striker and center back

  4. I wouldn’t give up on leao he should definitely stay because when he is at his best he is one of the best wingers. We sold tonali and got 3 midfielders instead of him I would swap them anytime back for tonali. We shouldn’t do the same mistake. Some people here play too much fifa and think it’s easy to replace a player like Leao. This Milan needs to build around its best players instead of selling them otherwise we will keep repeating this process and it will be hard to achieve the champions league or even Scudetto in the coming seasons. A team needs stability.

  5. Yes please. Let’s get rid of leao straightaway. He is lazy, plays 5 minutes in every match and then goes to sleep.
    Can we also get rid of furlani and moncada by the way???

  6. He’s a fantastic player but we’re not going to see much more of him with how Pioli is doing him like ‘go and play just run with the ball any how you feel suits you and when you struggle to dribble then simply send crosses in” no precise idea on how to play with his teammates especially when further away from goal. Talented player but not clever enough with ideas so he needs more instructions ffs Pioli. If a different coach (not Conte tho) is not coming then anything above 100 mil for the player would do me.
