Winner of Serie A with AC Milan, Rafael Leao is of great interest to PSG.
Definitely, the Portuguese are popular with Parisians and in particular with Luis Campos, the club’s sports adviser. Having already got their hands on Vitinha and Renato Sanches, the Ile-de-France leader dreams of attracting Rafael Leao to the French champions. According RMC Sportsit would even be one of his main targets at the end of the transfer window.
A complicated operation for PSG
Like Renato Sanches, Rafael Leao knows the Campos – Galtier duo very well. The first named brought him to Lille in 2018 and the second was his coach for two years with the Mastiffs. His qualities are therefore well known to the duo. At 23, the winger also has the experience of another major championship and he could therefore be an interesting contribution to PSG. It is perhaps the player with a “well-defined” profile who was mentioned by the Parisian coach on Thursday at a press conference.
The operation which consists in having him signed is not easy, however. The player has two more years on his contract at AC Milan, where he finished the title campaign as the team’s most decisive player with 14 goals scored and 10 assists offered. In order to lighten the amount of the transfer, Paris would be inclined to include one of its players as currency in exchange. Abdou Diallo could be that element as he has been of interest to the Rossoneri for a while.
