Antonio Leofather of AC Milan footballer Rafael, gave an interview to Record (HERE reproduced in full), a well-known Portuguese sports magazine, and thus expressed his opinion on the future of the AC Milan number 17.
The latest news talk about a renewal with Milan or an interest from Chelsea and that everything depends on the resolution of the process with Sporting…. Is that right?
“The answer is: we’re working on it!”.
What does this mean? Who renews with Milan or who goes to Chelsea?
“We are negotiating, because Rafael Leão has a contract that expires in 2024. Until that date, we are negotiating about everything. Without Chelsea, without Barcelona, without Real Madrid, we are dealing with this.”
Is Rafa’s will to stay in Italy or leave Milan after 2024?
“He loves being in Italy. He has a predilection for the Italians, the one the Portuguese don’t have for him. He won the best player award in last Serie A not because he was handsome, but simply… because he’s the best.”
