Milan Star Leao Sparks Liverpool Imagination with Social Media Post

In-demand Milan forward Rafael Leao has sparked the imagination of Liverpool fans by donning a Mohamed Salah shirt while working out. As one of the best-performing attacking players in Europe’s top-five leagues, the Portugal international is attracting interest from virtually everywhere. 

Leao’s qualities seem to be the most appealing to Premier League clubs. The quicksilver Milan forward has already drawn attention from Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester United, but it goes beyond top English sides. Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain showed appreciation for his skills last summer. 

However, there’s an overall opinion that Leao’s future lies in the Premier League. He has less than two years left on his current contract at Milan. But those at the top of the Rossoneri hierarchy are working around the clock to tie him down to a new long-term deal. Negotiations have been underway for quite a while now. 

As talks between the parties drag on, those lurking in the shadows are growing in confidence. The last team to receive signals from Leao was Liverpool. The 23-year-old was caught wearing a Salah shirt while working out, with the pictures surfacing on social media. It’s fair to say those posts have lit up the Reds’ fanbase. 

Though Leao was quick to address the rumors by committing his future to Milan, he refused to rule out the possibility of switching to the Premier League. Since the Portuguese youngster has yet to sign the papers, those hoping to take him away from Serie A are allowed to dream big. 

In the meantime, Milan boss Stefano Pioli has recently urged Leao to stick with Milan amid transfer rumors. Aware of the forward’s significance to his set-up, the Italian manager is desperate to have the player stay put at the San Siro. It’s now entirely up to him to decide what he wants to do next.
