Two clubs above all remain interested in signing Rafael Leao and it is not ruled out that AC Milan could cash in for the right offer, according to a report.

Calciomercato.it speak about Leao’s mixed first part of the season, recalling that the Portuguese winger has recorded three goals and three assists in the first 13 games across all competitions, whereas at the same point last season he had 10 goal contributions (4G, 6A).

 

Despite the fact Milan managed to renew his contract until June 2028, the rumours about his future and a potential move abroad have not stopped, with two European heavyweights watching him closely.

 

Paris Saint-Germain remain an interested spectator on Leao, especially if the Parisians have to say goodbye to Kylian Mbappe at the end of the season given he would be the natural replacement for the Frenchman.

 

Manchester United’s interest in the former Lille man must also be relayed. Marcus Rashford has not been as effective on the left in Erik ten Hag ‘s trident this season, and thus the Dutch coach could push for the arrival of Leao.

 

United are aware that to convince Milan to negotiate the sale of the Sporting CP academy graduate they will need to pay at least €120m. Leao has a salary of €7m net per season at Milan (including bonuses), which the Old Trafford club would be willing to double.
