AC Milan forward Rafael Leao has spoken out on his future amid transfer rumours linking him with the likes of Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.

Fabrizio Romano has discussed Chelsea’s priorities in his exclusive CaughtOffside column, making it clear that a centre-forward is one of the positions they’re most keen to strengthen this summer, so even if Leao would have been tempting, they might be better off focusing on other options anyway.
