Portuguese agent Jorge Mendes has met with three clubs offering the services of AC Milan striker Rafael Leao.
AC Milan has been doing very well since the league has resumed and many players too are performing quite well. Some represent a confirmation, others are a surprise.
Among those who have impressed recently there is Rafael Leao, who has scored three goals in the last five games. The last one against Juventus was a crucial strike helping AC Milan defeat the Serie A champions 4-2. His goal paved the path to victory, reaffirmed by the subsequent goal of Ante Rebic who closed the game.
Finally, the important investment of around 25 million euros made by AC Milan is beginning to pay off. Rafael Leao’s performances are convincing and there is still so much potential to pull out, given that he just 21-year-old.
The former Sporting Lisbon and Lille striker wants to stay with the Rossoneri. However, much will also depend on Ralf Rangnick, who reportedly will have the final say on whether Rafael will be part of his technical-tactical project for next season.
Journalist Nicolo Schira reveals that his agent Jorge Mendes in recent weeks has had the opportunity to speak with three clubs for the Portuguese talent. Jorge Mendes has offered Rafael Leao to Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Wolverhampton and they all expressed their appreciation for the AC Milan number 17.
The player wants to stay at Milan but he definitely wants more game time. Rangnick should give him a chance, especially if Leao keeps performing at this level until the end of the season. Pioli has often praised the attitude of the Portuguese talent that is also a very important factor Rangnick takes into consideration.
