Chelsea interest Leao not ok with new Milan contract

Browse By

Chelsea have expressed interest and are monitoring the situation of AC Milan‘s Portugal forward Rafael Leao.

Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Chelsea have made inquiries about Leao in the transfer market this summer. But no official offer has made for AC Milan. Corriere dello Sport confirm Chelsea are monitoring Leao’s situation closely and Manchester City are crown. Premier League champions. It is another British ufabet team that is interest as well.

The report states that Milan are not close to reaching an agreement on a new contract with Leao, although the current contract is still two years old. Or until June 2024 and has a current release clause of 150 million euros. But Rossoneri wants to guarantee the Portuguese forward’s future as soon as possible. As for the new contract, Leao will receive a four-fold increase in wages from his current contract, from €1.5 million a year to €6 million a year. And reduce the release clause to 90-100 million euros, but still not satisfied with the players.

Milan are reluctant to sell Leao and are still working to try and tie the Portuguese down to a long-term contract as he has one year left on his current deal. They would likely demand €120 million.

The 23-year-old is not expected to push through a move to another club this summer but the interest of Chelsea will certainly be a concern for the Rossoneri as the Premier League side will be able to offer a lucrative contract.
