AC Milan change stance on Rafael Leao

AC Milan are no longer considering Rafael Leao an untouchable player and are ready to listen to offers for their winger.

Despite the recent slowdown, Rafael Leao is having his best year with AC Milan since his arrival in 2019. The flamboyant left winger has been in fine form scoring 11 goals and assisting 6 in 35 appearance so far. Leao’s contract with the Rossoneri runs down in two years and the parties are negotiating an extension.

AC Milan have offered Leao a new five-year contract of 4.5 million euros per season, bonuses included. The Rossoneri and the Portuguese were believed to be very close to an agreement at the end of last year but months have passed and AC Milan are beginning to worry.

The 22-year-old is reportedly asking for more money. The situation with Sporting Lisbon and the heavy fine from CAS could have a significant influence in the decision about his future. AC Milan have not appreciated what has happened recently and no intention to wait for Leao for much longer.

AC Milan are reportedly no longer considering Rafael Leao untouchable. If the Rossoneri receive a tempting bid for their star winger they would be willing to sit down and negotiate. AC Milan have set a 90 million euros price tag for Rafael Leao according to La Repubblica.

The Portugal international has attracted a lot of attention with his performances this season. Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund are keeping tabs on the 22-year-old winger.
