Leao’s renewal put on pause as appeal verdict over €16.5m sentence is awaited

Rafael Leao’s renewal is currently on pause because of the sentence that he is looking to overturn regarding a payment to former club Sporting CP, a report claims.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via PianetaMilan), the Rossoneri are keen to reward Leao with a contract extension and a pay rise given his explosion this season as he hit double figures in goals on Sunday netting the winner against Sampdoria. Talks between Paolo Maldini, Frederic Massara and agent Jorge Mendes are ongoing, but there is a hurdle to jump first.

That is because the verdict of the TAS (Court of Arbitration for Sport) in Lausanne is awaited on the issue involving Leao and Sporting Lisbon. In 2018, Leao terminated his contract along with other players due to Sporting ultras storming the training ground.

The Lisbon Court sided with Sporting in their most recent ruling, sentencing Leao to compensate the Lusitanian club a fee of €16.5m. The entourage of the Portuguese forward first want to wait for the verdict of the TAS – who they appealed to – to understand in what financial situation he will find himself. The story will be clearer within a couple of weeks, therefore.
