According to The Athletic, Chelsea sent an offer to exchange two stars to AC Milan to get the signature of Rafael Leao in the summer of 2022. Leao landed at San Siro in 2019. Since then, the Portuguese striker Portugal thrived under coach Stefano Pioli.
In the 2021/2022 season, Leao played explosively on the journey of AC Milan to win Serie A. After 159 matches, Leao contributed 40 goals and 34 assists. Leao was also voted the best player in the Italian league 2021/2022.
An excellent performance helped Leao get into Chelsea’s sights. Co-owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali have made an offer to Milan for Leao’s services.
Specifically, Chelsea will approve the spending of £ 87 million with the duo Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic. On the side of Milan, the Serie A team maintains that they will let Leao leave if the Blues have enough £ 131 million (contract termination clause).
Leao promises to be still a hot face on the summer market of 2023. Chelsea has the ability to return to the Portuguese striker deal.
