Real Madrid Unlikely to Be in the Mix for Milan Star

Several top teams are keeping tabs on what is going between Rafael Leao and Milan, but Real Madrid aren’t among those eagerly waiting in the wings. The star has been offered to them by Jorge Mendes, but they aren’t particularly keen at this stage, Marca informs.

The super-agent doesn’t formally represent the Rossoneri forward, but his father turned to him to settle the legal dispute with Sporting CP. Instead, the defending Serie A champions met with his lawyer Tom Dimvula last month, who possesses the power of attorney.

According to Sport, Real Madrid could be interested in Leao only a free transfer when his current deal runs out in 2024. Milan are trying to come to terms on a new one. The impasse is unlikely to drag on for so long.

Rather than on the Rossoneri ace, Los Merengues will invest in Palmeiras’ 16-year-old prodigy Endrick. As per O Globo, they will activate his €60M release clause, plus €12M in taxes. He will join once he turns 18 in 2024. They have reportedly beaten out PSG in the race.

Our Take on Leao and Real Madrid

While Los Galacticos can never be discounted when it comes to purchasing top players, they are potentially set for a decade in his role. Their next giant investments will likely come in different positions. It’d be insanity if the uncertainty lasted until 2024. The Rossoneri will inevitably have to sell next summer if they don’t reach agreement. The latest whispers were on the positive side. However, one of the many problems they are dealing with is that his camp seems split on the plan for the future.
