Chelsea is in advanced talks to sign the most talented forward in Serie A

GOOD NEWS: Chelsea is in advanced talks to sign the most talented forward in Serie A.

To negotiate a potential transfer for Rafael Leao, Chelsea has been in touch with Milan. The contract of the Portugal international expires in 18 months, which may compel the Rossoneri to take large offers in the upcoming window. The long-term and short-term futures of talisman Leao are a source of contention for Serie A heavyweights.

The club wants to keep Rafael at Milan past the conclusion of his current deal in 2024. The 23-year-old forward’s demands to sign a new deal have made things challenging, even though his performances have supported such claims. The Portuguese forward led the Rossoneri to the Scudetto and was named Serie A’s MVP the previous season.

In 14 league games this season, the Portuguese has already scored six goals and provided five assists. Given that Milan continues to have financial difficulties, it may be challenging for them to agree to his demand for a salary of £170,000 per week. Although a new contract is not ruled out, the time it takes to reach an agreement will allow other teams to scout the former Lille attacker.

Leao has a £127 million release clause, but the Blues would think about making a substantial offer, according to reports. Rafael’s early departure from Milan would reportedly cost approximately £87 million, which would tempt Chelsea.

The London giants might have kept in touch with Milan to talk about the forward’s potential transfer. In January or the next summer, they might be eager to sign the 23-year-old winger for a fair price.
