AC Milan

Romano gives update on ‘ongoing’ Leao renewal talks: “Maldini is on it”

Rafael Leao’s future at AC Milan remains uncertain but talks are still ongoing over a new deal with the management, according to a report.

Fabrizio Romano has provided an update in today’s edition of his Daily Briefing on CaughtOffside’s Substack regarding the future of Leao, who continues to be linked with top clubs around Europe such as Chelsea, Manchester City and most recently Real Madrid.

Providing an update on Leao amid the recent transfer rumours, Romano said: “There are negotiations ongoing between AC Milan and Rafael Leao, his agents and his family.

“I’m aware there’s been some speculation about talks stalling, and while it’s not an easy deal, discussions are still ongoing. Paolo Maldini is on it and will try to find a solution as soon as possible.

“I don’t see a transfer happening in January, honestly as Milan will try to keep him for sure; we’ve to see what happens in the summer.”

Given that Chelsea’s new manager buzz under Graham Potter seems to have worn off and they are now struggling to score goals again it could well be that they return to the market in January, with Leao among the players Potter likes as per a recent report from Ben Jacobs of CBS Sports.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Raheem Sterling are not firing while Potter doesn’t seem thrilled with the other options such as Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech, so Maldini must move quickly to resolve Leao’s future or risk a bid arriving in January.
