Manchester United need to improve their wide attacking positions and are interested in signing Rafael Leao.
According to an exclusive report covered by Pianeta Milan, Man Utd would be ready to sign the Portuguese international if AC Milan fail to agree fresh terms with him.
Transfer: Man Utd willing to pay £79.6m fee and treble wages to secure signing – Report
Leao’s current deal with the Rossoneri will expire next year and he is looking for a handsome pay rise to extend his stay at the San Siro.
The 23-year-old, who can effectively play on either flank, directly contributed in 21 goals in Milan’s Scudetto winning campaign last term.
The news source have mentioned that the Seleccao winger’s contract has a mammoth release clause of £132million and the seven-time European champions would want a figure close to that amount if they are to sell him.
In all fairness, keeping in view the playmaker will be out of contract in just over 15 months, it is highly unlikely AC Milan would be able to get a figure of £132million from his sale.
This season, Leao has so far featured in 34 games in all competitions, scored 9 goals and provided 10 assists under Stefan Pioli.
In 2021, Man United splashed a lot of cash to lure English winger, Jadon Sancho, from Dortmund. On the other hand, the Red Devils broke the bank to lure Brazilian attacker, Antony, from Ajax.
Unfortunately, the duo have not been able to justify their huge price tags and the burden has mainly fallen on the shoulders of Marcus Rashford.
Therefore, the Old Trafford outfit must sign a quality winger in the summer transfer window and Rafael Leao would be a top addition. What do you think?
