Paolo Maldini told La Gazzetta Dello Sport many things regarding the future of Rafael Leao.
Maldini said: “Leao has a different situation which comes from his transfer to Lille.”
“This is having an impact, interlocutors have often changed, but Rafa is grateful to us and I take into account what he says.
“Rafa understands that the path for the next few years must be at Milan. He understands it and he says it. There will be a negotiation, and we know that strong players must be paid for their value. If the team improves further, he will have everything to do even more. Then, of course, nobody is unsellable, in any team in the world.”
When asked if he is optimistic about reaching an agreement with Leao, Maldini replied: “Yes, with him, but we have nothing to do with Sporting CP.”
