Leao mockery: sent off, will miss Napoli

In addition to the damage, there is the mockery: Rafael Leao was sent off in the match against Sampdoria for double admonition and will therefore miss the big match against Napoli scheduled for Sunday. Luciano Spalletti, on the other hand, will have to do without Victor Osimhen, out due to an injury suffered in the Champions League match against Liverpool.

Leao picked up a yellow card in the first half and one in the 47th minute when, in an effort to overthrow, he hit Alex Ferrari in the face, who saw the Portuguese’s foot stamped on his face.

Meanwhile, the player’s entourage is working with Maldini and Massara on a contract renewal: Milan’s priority is obviously to retain the player, who, however, is asking for a 7 million euro net salary per season plus substantial bonuses. Optimism is filtering from Milanello but, should things come to a standstill, Chelsea would probably be the first club to make an offer: in the summer the Blues expressed interest in bringing Leao to London, even paying 120 million euros, but receiving a sharp ‘no’ from the Diavolo management.
