Tuttosport: Milan disappointed with Leao and could sacrifice him for other targets – the asking price

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan do not consider Rafael Leao to be unsellable and they have in fact set an asking price for his departure, according to a report.

This morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanLive) writes that Milan are not 100% satisfied with Leao’s 2020-21 season and  the growth he has shown, particularly in the second half of the campaign when he failed to follow up an excellent pre-Christmas period.

He has ultimately struggled to establish himself both as a striker and as a winger, and for this reason the paper writes how the Rossoneri management would be open to evaluate any offers that come in for Leao. His sale would allow Milan to make a capital gain and spend the proceeds on other targets too, with a €25-30m asking price set.

This is basically the same price spent by the Rossoneri in the summer of 2019, when he was signed from Lille after an explosive season in Ligue 1. Agent Jorge Mendes would have no difficulty in finding him a new club, with Roma or Wolves mentioned as possible destinations.

    Pioli is to blame for his underperformance… He doesn’t understand the player characteristics. Just like paqueta, we will lose another good player for bargain

      maybe but either way it is time for leao to go. he makes excellent runs but with bennacer dropping back and theo making runs leao isnt able to make striking runs which is what he is so good at. He’s not good handling under pressure and he’s not that creative so why keep him if theo swarms all the runs

    Get this 20 years old tired veteran out of milan now

  4. Joe Helmy says:

    It’s okay to cash him 25-30 million and buy Khvicha Kvaratskhelia (21 years) from Ruben Kazan for around 15 million. I think he is better than Leao.

    1. ChazyMilan says:

      Yes bro…He is a much better profile. Khvica should be available in that price range too. Kaladze mgiht help with that. Leao himself seems confused whether he is a winger or a striker. He feels underconfident & half hearted while playing.
