Chelsea ready to break bank for €85m-rated Rossoneri Star winger

Chelsea are reportedly redy to submit a mega €100m January bid to add Milan attacker Rafael Leao. The 23-year-old winger has been monitored by the London giants for a long time, and the Blues made the attacker one of their top transfer targets for 2023 after the signing of Nkunku.

Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly is understood to be a big fan of Leao mercurial talent and is planning to bring the forward to Chelsea next month or at the end of the season, having already failed in his pursuit last summer.

The Blues were strongly linked over a summer bid for Rafael and even saw an informal approach knocked back on deadline day despite their supposed willingness to pay upwards of €100m when the Rossoneri director Paolo Maldini said that the club would only accept offers that met his eye-watering €150m release clause.

However, the Rossoneri’s stern stance could change depending on whether Milan believe they can still convince him to commit to a new long-term deal. Portugal international showcased his enormous potential and creative flair, which can get fans off their seats in excitement.

With 11 goals and nine assists to his name, he was named Serie A’s MVP of the season for the 2021-22 campaign, as he played an important part in Milan’s first Scudetto success in 11 years. Leao has been in fine form for the Rossoneri this campaign, finding the back of the net seven times and setting up nine more in 20 games across all tournaments.
