Leao plays down Milan exit rumours

AC Milan star Rafael Leao has been heavily linked with a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain as one of the main candidates for the Ligue 1 champions to replace Kylian Mbappe in the summer. However, as he told Corriere della Sera, the Portuguese winger has no intention of leaving the Rossoneri for a while yet.

Players have been known to expressed loyalty to their current clubs and then still leave at the first opportunity in the past, but Leao appears quite determined to continue leaving his mark at San Siro for the foreseeable future.

Labelled as one of the most potent wide attackers in Europe’s top leagues, the 24-year-old has so far made 33 appearances in all competitions for Milan this season, scoring nine goals and contributing eight assists. As he said himself, there are four years left on his contract and it stands to reason to assume it would take a fee well in excess of €100 million for the seven-time European champions to even consider a sale.
