Rafael Leao has grown into a star at AC Milan, he was named the Player of the Season in Serie A for 2021/22 after scoring 11 goals and dishing out 10 assists, to be one of the most sought-after players in Europe.
His contributions then led AC Milan to the Serie A title, and attracted attention from Europe’s elite.
“I don’t like these comparisons, but if Manchester City paid 117 million for [Jack] Grealish? how much can Leao be worth?” said Massimo Ambrosini about Rafael Leao, for whom Milan paid 29.5m euros to Lille in 2019.
In an interview with Record, the father of the 23-year-old, Antonio Leao, spoke about the future of his son and commented on links to Chelsea, Real Madrid or Barcelona.
“We are negotiating with Milan, because Rafa has a contract that expires in 2024,” Antonio Leao said about Rafael‘s situation.
“There is still time before 2024, and we will deal with everything. From Real Madrid, Barcelona or Chelsea.”
Leao‘s market value is thought to be between 85-120 million euros.
“Rafa feels very comfortable in Milan because the cultures are similar,” Antonio Leao said. “The club has done a lot for him, but Rafael has become the best player in that league. He is simply the best.
In Italy, it has been reported that Milan have offered 5m euros per season to Rafael Leao, who is thought to be holding out for 7m euros a year.
