AC Milan want to resolve Rafael Leao future in coming days amidst Manchester United interest
The Portugal international current contract with the Rossoneri is set to expire in the summer of 2024. As a result, the Italian outfit are looking to secure the 23-year-old’s future at the San Siro side soon.
However, at the moment, Milan are at an impasse with Leao regarding new terms. However, have decided to meet the forward’s entourage in the next 10 to 15 days and are hoping to make substantial progress in extending his deal.
But the Red Devils are waiting in the flanks and weighing up a move for the 23-year-old. Apart from the Old Trafford side, Premier League rivals Manchester City and Chelsea, as well as Paris Saint-Germain and Real Marid, are monitoring the Portugueses’ situation.
Leao signed for Milan in the summer of 2019 from LOSC Lille. After taking a few seasons to settle in at the Italian outfit, the forward found his feet in the previous campaign.
The Portuguese has continued to perform at a top level for Stefano Pioli’s team this term. The left winger has made 35 appearances for the San Siro side, scoring nine goals and providing 10 assists.
For now, Marcus Rashford is putting in some electric displays for United week in, week out. The 25-year-old is the leading goalscorer at the Old Trafford side this season.
However, apart from the England international, Alejandro Garnacho has also made a place for himself in Erik ten hag’s plans on the left-hand side of the attack. The 18-year-old has put in some clutch displays off the bench for the Manchester-based club.
