Leao responds to Maldini calling him untouchable and Real Madrid rumors

AC Milan winger Rafael Leao has attracted the attention of many important clubs with his great performances this season.

Rafael Leao was one of the big protagonists of AC Milan’s Scudetto triumph. The Portuguese left winger reached double figures for the first time in his career soring 14 goals and assisting 12 across all competitions. Great performances that have attracted the attention of many important European clubs.

AC Milan consider Leao untouchable but renewal talks have not preceded as expected. The contract of the 23-year-old runs down in two years and the Rossoneri have been unable to reach an agreement with the player and his agent Jorge Mendes. It will be up to new owners, RedBird Capital, to convince Leao to pen a new deal.

Leao is currently busy on international duty with Portugal. In an interview with newspaper A Bola the flamboyant winger commented on his situation at AC Milan. “I have another two years of contract at AC Milan. I am happy that Maldini considers me untouchable. I feel at home, but at the moment I’m focused on the national team“.

Rafael Leao was also asked about the rumors that Real Madrid are interested in him: “I’m happy, but my feet are firmly on the ground. It is an honor to work with very experienced players. At Milan the first two years did not go as I would have liked but now I am more mature and confident. The season went as I wanted. I hope to do great things in the future ”.

The AC Milan number 17 was then asked what he wants for his future. “To be a point of reference in my club and in the national team. The highest point, for example, would be to win a World Cup”. Once again Rafa reveals his ambitious nature.
