The future of Rafael Leao will continue to monopolize Milan’s attention. At the end of the contract in 2024, the Portuguese international did not extend. A proposal for the Rossoneri wing has already been made. However, the former LOSC forward would like to take his time before making up his mind. To the delight of Pep Guardiola who would like to recruit him to Manchester City.
A wage of 12 million euros a year for Rafael Leao?
Thus, according to information from TuttoMercatoWebPep Guardiola would be willing to splurge financially to bring in Rafael Leao. In fact, it is the salary that will be a problem for Milan to extend their winger. The Portugal international would be very greedy, too much for Rossoneri. But not for Citizens.
Currently, Milan is not willing to go beyond the annual €7 million offered to Rafael Leao. However, the Portugal international would demand much more than that. A situation that would complicate negotiations. For his part, Manchester City would be willing to offer up to €12m in annual salary for Rafael Leao. Something that makes the interested party think.
Jack Grealish sacrificed?
At the same time, we have learned via the English press that Pep Guardiola will also be willing to make sacrifices for the Portugal international. An expensive signing from Aston Villa in 2021, Jack Grealish could leave to make room for Rafael Leao.
His transfer was the most expensive in the history of Manchester City, amounting to 117.5 million euros. However, this traffic can also exceed 100 million euros. Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are also vying to sign the Portugal international. A situation to be followed closely in the coming weeks.
