Man City are lining up move for Milan star Rafael Leao with €150m clause.

Report claims Man City are lining up move for Milan star with €150m clause. Manchester City are determined to make a big signing in the next summer transfer window and they are targeting Rafael Leao, a report claims.

Next summer, Manchester City may prepare a massive offer to sign Rafael Leao as Pep Guardiola considers making more adjustments to his attacking lineup. Manchester City are reportedly preparing a large bid to sign Rafael Leao from AC Milan next summer. The Sun claims that City are ready to offer Leao a £200k-a-week deal.

Leao is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a forward for AC Milan and the Portuguese national team. He has scored 41 goals in the 2022–23 and 2023–24 seasons. 

Fichajes argues that Manchester City might make a stunning €150 million bid for Rafael Leao in the summer. The 24-year-old Serie A forward is admired by Pep Guardiola, who may push the team to make a move for the legendary AC Milan player.
By reaching an agreement on a new contract with Rafael Leao, who had many suitors interested in signing, AC Milan managed to avoid rumors. Although the 24-year-old Serie A forward had yet another incredible season for the Rosoneri, those eager to sign him found hope in his diminishing contract.

 

Milan consented to a new contract that included an enormous release clause estimated to be worth $175 million. As a result, for interested clubs to reach a contract with the Serie A team, they have to cover that cost or something similar.

Pep Guardiola is said to be a big fan of Leao. According to Calciomercato, Guardiola may offer Jack Grealish to AC Milan in a swap deal.

Real Madrid, PSG, Arsenal, Liverpool, and even Manchester United are among the teams with a strong interest in Leao. However, Manchester City appears to be the team most determined to sign the Serie A forward, 24, should the chance arise.

Leao’s summer transfer was already contemplated by Manchester City, who would have approached if he had chosen not to sign a new contract. Milan, fortunately, has safeguarded the Portuguese star’s value and will probably ask for a high price when selling him.

Manchester City is reportedly prepared to pay €150 million to sign Leao in the summer. Even though the price might catch Milan’s attention, they might still demand something along the lines of his release clause. Because he sees the 24-year-old on his team, Pep Guardiola continues to be a fan.

Although Nico Williams is approaching a new contract in Spain, Guardiola still has his sights set on the player. Leao and the Spaniard are both great choices, but the Portuguese player would make more sense if Manchester City was prepared to shell out a huge sum of money.

Should Manchester City pull off a successful and trouble-free transfer for Leao, the attack’s left flank would seem to be reorganized. Jeremy Doku, who Guardiola signed in the summer, is continuing to dominate Jack Grealish on the left side. Leao’s arrival would be the last straw for the latter.

Leao will add a fresh perspective to that end of the field and a wealth of goal-scoring ability. Even though any deal will be challenging, it’s not out of the question that Manchester City will be able to sign the 24-year-old Serie A forward.
