€70M for Milan’s ‘killer’

Waiting for what finally happens with the future of Kylian Mbappé, in Paris they are still looking for the most suitable players with whom to reinforce their squad in order to try again the assault on the Champions League. Of the many names that have been floated to improve Paris Saint-Germain’s already feared line of attack, that of Rafael Leão, current AC Milan player, would currently be occupying a priority position on the target list.

The price? As reported by the Italian newspaper Correrie dello Sport, the Parisian team would be willing to put 70M euros on the table of the picture Red-black. Likewise, this media indicates that the operation would be very advanced. However, Paris Saint-Germain are not alone in the race for the Portuguese international. Rafael Leão’s third season in Milan would not have gone unnoticed by the big European clubs and other teams like Newcastle, Liverpool or FC Barcelona would also be tracking the 22-year-old attacker.

The Portuguese striker has become a key piece for AC Milan, which is about to win the Scudetto again 11 years later – he is the leader with 80 points, two more than Inter Milan. And it is that 4 of the 10 goals accumulated this season in Serie A have given 7 points to the rossoneri and, in addition, another 4 goals have served Pioli’s men to get ahead on the scoreboard, becoming, together with Tonali and Maignan, the fundamental men of the leader. Taking into account all the competitions (Serie A, Champions League and Coppa Italia), during which he has played 40 matches, Rafael Leão has 13 goals and 9 assists, which makes him the team’s top scorer ahead of Olivier Giroud (12).
