Chelsea target will not renew his contract

Chelsea target Rafael Leāo will not renew his existing contract with AC Milan.

The 23 year old helped the Italian side win their first Scudetto in more than a decade last season, and has already scored 9 goals and provided 9 assists for them in all competitions this campaign.

He played in all five of Portugal’s matches at the World Cup, scoring twice, but he was mainly confined to cameo appearances off the bench.

His current contract in Milan ends in June 2024, but, although talks have started over an extension, they have now come to a halt because of his terms and conditions, with Leāo wanting more than the €7 million (£6 million) a year that the Italian side are ready to offer him.

And with Chelsea among the clubs waiting in the wings, the Serie A side may have a decision to make about whether it is now the best time to maximise the value of their asset.
