Milan President’s Stance on Standout Star Sparks Anxiety

Milan President Paolo Scaroni has delivered a shocking verdict on the future of quicksilver forward Rafael Leao. Whether it was a poorly attempted joke or a hint at the club’s stance on their best player, the Rossoneri fans are in agony.

Leao? If they offer us €150m, I’ll wrap him up in a package myself. I am, after all, a very venal person,” Scaroni told some supporters, as overheard by Agenzia Dire and later related by TMW. “The priority right now is finding a center-forward.

While Milan reportedly attempted to quash these talks, deeming them fake and publicly trying to dismiss the rumors, the seed of doubt has been planted. The club’s effort to put speculation under the rug came late, with fears and anxiety spreading among the Rossoneri community.

Milan are preparing for life after Stefano Pioli and can ill-afford to lose their talisman, especially after Olivier Giroud’s departure. However, Scaroni’s alleged statement could carry a glimmer of truth. The Serie A runners-up may not say no if a significant offer arrives at San Siro.

Such has been the recent reality of Italian clubs. They can’t compete with wealthy foreign teams. And Leao’s admirers have truckloads of money. After Paris Saint-Germain, Saudi Pro League champions Al-Hilal have laid eyes on the Milan superstar.

Regardless of the money, Scaroni’s words have only embarrassed Milan. One of the leading figures of a club of this stature should know better than to make such statements in public.
