Foreign clubs are interested in Rafael Leao. The Portuguese has yet to sign a contract renewal with AC Milan.
The situation of Rafael Leao remains unclear. The Rossoneri were hopeful of reaching an agreement with the Portuguese winger weeks ago but April is passing and Leao has yet to put pen to paper on a new contract. It looks like this issue will drag until the end of the season despite the initial optimism.
AC Milan have offered Rafael Leao a new four-year contract until 2026 with wages of around 4.5 million euros per season. Practically the same figures that Theo Hernandez is earning from the new deal. However, the 22-year-old left winger is asking for something more and many clubs are circling around.
MilanNews.it reports that agent Jorge Mendes has received an important offer for Rafael Leao from a foreign club believed to be Manchester City. Nevertheless, the player and his agent have declined to make a decision now. Leao will evaluate the situation at the end of the season according to MilanNews.
Milan want to keep their prized asset and will not take into consideration offers of less than €70 million. The Portugal international is having his best season helping the Rossoneri fight for the Scudetto. Rafael Leao has scored 12 goals and assisted 7 in 38 appearances across all competitions.
The player is reportedly happy at Milanello and stay is his preference. At the same time, Leao continues the legal battle with his former clubs Sport Lisbon. The player and Lille must pay a fee of €20 million in compensation to Sporting Lisbon. A big problem and could have a significant influence in the final decision about his future.
