Leao Expected to Be a Building Block for the Future

Milan need to come to terms with Mike Maignan and Theo Hernandez to make sure they stay long-term, while there are fewer doubts about Rafael Leao. He agreed to a contract extension last May. He and the team are in unison about continuing together for years to come, Sky reported.

The Portuguese has had an up-and-down campaign. He got off to a slow start but turned it around in 2024. However, he couldn’t rise to the occasion in the crunch matches down the stretch in the Europa League and Serie A. Despite a smaller production domestically, he has recorded 13 goals and 13 assists in all competitions.

Leao will enter his sixth Milan campaign in 2025/2026. Only a giant offer could change the scenario. The Rossoneri have never received particularly large ones even when his future was hanging in the balance during the never-ending negotiation to renew his deal. Moreover, the winger has no desire to leave.

The ace has a €175M release clause, which protects the team since it’s well above market value.

Our Take on Milan and Leao

Their officials have been consistent with their position about their cornerstones on and off the record, but you never truly know in today’s football. Turning down humungous offers is tough for any Italian team, even those in great financial shape. On the other hand, his campaign has only been so-so, and there’s not much buzz about him. PSG might be the only realistic game-changer given their upcoming search for a Kylian Mbappé heir.
