The Rafael Leao dilemma continues. His contract with AC Milan will expire in 2024 and the parties are not close to an agreement as things stand, while several big European clubs are monitoring the situation with great interest.

Leao is a key player for the Rossoneri and his stocks really skyrocketed after the Scudetto season, in which he was unstoppable towards the end. He has started this season well and the interest has only gotten stronger, if anything.

According to Calciomercato.com, the renewal is well and truly a dilemma for Milan as the total cost of it would be €60-65m. That figure is based on the demands of Leao, as well as the €15m that must be paid to Sporting Lisbon.

The World Cup could increase the price tag of the player, as well as the salary demands, and Milan thus have to refer to the €150m clause. It will be active next summer and selling him at that price wouldn’t be a disaster. However, it’s unclear whether clubs will be willing to pay that or not for a player with one year left on his contract.
