AC Milan in doubt about Leao


AC Milan is facing a delicate situation regarding the contract extension of Rafael Leao, Portuguese striker passed by Lille.

Rafael Leao, AC Milan

Although his contract does not end until 2024, the rossonero club faces the trauma of having failed to extend several players in the past, such as Gianluigi Donnarumma, Hakan Calhanoglu, Alessio Romagnoli and Franck Kessié, all left the club. But Leao is considered a talented but inconstant player, with a seesaw performance that does not allow him to be counted on in every match.

Milan offers a salary of 6.5 ME per season

Despite coach Stefano Pioli’s attempts to boost his pride, the striker failed to find continuity in his performances. The player was even suspended for accumulating yellow cards, which says a lot about his nervousness. Although Rafael Leao said recently that he feels good at Milan, he added that he doesn’t know what the future holds for him, casting doubt on his long-term intentions.

According Calcio Mercato, AC Milan offered a contract extension of 6.5 million euros until 2027, four times more than his current salary. The Lombard club are unlikely to make a higher offer, despite fears of losing Rafael Leao. If no agreement is reached, the club will have to consider selling the player already this summer, rather than letting him leave for free at the end of his contract. Leaders should then be prepared to reinvest the funds obtained to strengthen the team.

Time is running out for AC Milan, who will have to resolve this situation quickly and avoid repeating the mistakes of the past. The club can no longer afford to lose another important player without getting anything in return. 23-year-old Rafael Leao has scored 9 goals and provided 10 assists in 32 games in all competitions this season.
