Milan’s Rafael Leao has €150m release clause, club working on extension – report

by | May 23, 2022 14:51

Rafael Leao has a €150 million release clause in his Milan contract which the club are looking to renew, according to reports in Italy.

The Portugal forward has been sensational as the Rossoneri won the Scudetto and was named the Football Italia’s Serie A Player of the Season.

Calciomercato.com report he has been the subject of interest from several top clubs but has a mammoth release clause which was inserted into his contract following his arrival from Lille in 2019.

The report adds that Leao’s agent Jorge Mendes had initially been against the clause but that Milan will not accept a euro below €150m for their No. 17.

Leao has been decisive throughout the campaign with 11 of his 14 goals putting Milan ahead in a game.

Since Inter‘s slip up against Inter on matchday 34 which handed Milan the advantage in the title race, the Rossoneri have scored nine goals – with Leao scoring two and assisting five

    Man City will come flying in for him at that price if Milan don’t get it renewed.

    If they’re willing to pay £100m for Grealish, Leao is a bargain!!

    We seriously need to tie him down. As long as he’s happy to stay with us, we should pay him a good salary – more than the 4.5 we seem to be offering to everyone. If he wants 6, even 7, pay him that. We did great this year, but let’s be honest, if we want to compete in Europe we need to still improve the team substantially, and in order to retain the talent we have, we need to pay them competitive wages!

    Come on people need give Milan a break. Winning the league was the most valuable achievement for a long time knowing full well they were weaker in most aspect. Reality will start to set in very quickly when their best players realise it’s now or never to play with a bigger team with ambitions.

    @soloInter, not at all.
    If Milan didn’t win the scudetto, then yes maybe the good players like Leao, Theo, etc. would have been more likely to leave in the next seasons.
    But the Serie A title changes everything, it proves that their hard work translates to titles, It’s a new era and these young players started it!
    Milan will keep a core of players (Leao, Theo, Calabria, Tonali, Magnian, Tomori). Let them continue to grow and improve along with experience around (Giroud, Zlatan, Kjaer).

    @soloInter

    Your old story was that Milan will finish out of the top four and 100% will not win the Scudetto. We know how that turned out. Is this your new story now? Bitter much?! lol

    Tell yourself whatever makes you sleep at night.

    I believe Maldini and Milan will agree to keep Leao despite the salary rise. He’s still 22 and the future star of the club, especially if we want to compete in CL.

    Milan is not Inter who keep selling their best players for profit.

    @Solointer – Talk to me about Perisic what club with ambition is he going to this summer?

    Give the boys another year, add a striker and right-wing, and let Pobega replace Kessie/Brahim… The core of this squad can play through the next decade, reminding me of the Milan that was gathered from 99 with Sheva till Kaka came and put the final piece in the puzzle…

    How many points did Milan get in the Chams league again?

  10. Roland B

    @The Soup Nazi : should have been 8 / 18 if it wasn’t for referee error the game vs Athletico at home should have resulted with Milan getting all 3 points given that we won at Athletico that’s 6 points the goal Porto scored in Porto shouldn’t have stood there is either a handball or foul on the built up I don’t quite remember given that we tied Porto at home that’s 2 points Liverpool is the only team to have truly dominated Milan as you can see they are playing in the final . 8 points would have put us in 2nd place and qualified for the knock out phase . As for you NO SCUDETTO FOR U

    Inter and Juve gotta understand that this is good for the league. If the same keeps wining like Juve did for a freakin decade it make the league look like a farmer’s league. Be happy that Serie A is at least entertaining. smh.
