Chelsea are ‘in touch’ over deal to sign Seria A star
Chelsea are “still in touch” with AC Milan over the potential transfer of Rafael Leão – according to journalist Carlo Garganese.
With boss Graham Potter looking to add some serious quality to that attack in the coming transfer windows – there has been alot of speculation that the Premier League giants are keen on Leao
AC Milan are reportedly preparing themselves for big-money offers in the region of £105million for their star man in January – and it seemed that the club were the only serious contenders for the winger
Man City have entered the chase to try and sign the gifted attacker – however – so we will now have the best side in England competing for the services of Leao – if you believe the reports.
Now – if you believe the words of Garganese – we are in contact over the possible signing of the Portuguese star
Garganese told GIVEMESPORT: “Leão’s contract runs out in 2024. Chelsea, they’re still in touch, they’re one of the main clubs, but they’re not the only club that are interested in him.
“Real Madrid are also interested in him as well.”
AC Milan Director Paolo Maldini recently gave the club a boost in their chase to try and sign Rafael Leao
Milan were hoping to tie him down to a new deal so as to end speculation about his future – but Maldini says the Italians have yet to find an agreement with the player:
“We’ve been talking about this [contract extension] for months, if not years. We’ll meet at the right moment and make a decision.
“The idea was to close [the deal] before the World Cup, especially with players involved in the competition, Leao in this case. It was not possible.”
