Gianluca di Marzio via has been reporting that AC Milan attacker Rafael Leao received multiple offers in the summer transfer window but all of these were turned down by Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara. The Rossoneri are showing faith in the promising Portugal international who has shown how incredible he can be but has lacked consistency in the opening two seasons at the club. The player arrived from LOSC Lille in 2019 and has scored 14 goals and provided 9 assists in 75 games.

Di Marzio on his show stated:

“Milan have received many offers for Leao but have rejected them all because they are betting very strongly on him.”

Leao has started the season off very well, he is the starting left winger ahead of Ante Rebic for the moment and has been an extremely potent threat. He has scored one goal in two games thus far albeit with some luck.
