Al-Hilal on Rafael Leao

After the official goodbyes of Olivier Giroud and Simon Kjaer, AC Milan may have to deal with the disposals of other pillars of its roster, namely Theo Hernandez and Rafael Leao. On the Frenchman, for some time now, there would be the interest of Bayern Munich, while on the Portuguese, in recent days, Al-Hilal would have come forward.

According to reports in the Portuguese daily "O'Jogo", the Saudi club is reportedly ready to put on the table a monstrous offer of 175 million euros, which would be the amount of the rescission clause inserted in the contract between Leao and the Rossoneri club. In addition, in order to convince the Portuguese star to leave Milan, the Arab club would be ready to triple the current seven-million-euro salary that the 1999-born outfielder receives at Milan.

The Saudi Pro League-winning club that this season has contracted the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Ruben Neves, Renan Lodi, Aleksandar Mitrovic and even Neymar (despite having him injured most of the time) wants to continue its investment work because it wants to try to triumph in the Fifa Club World Cup in which it will take part in June 2025.

In the coming weeks, L'Al-Hilal, in fact, may initiate contacts with the footballer's entourage to find an understanding on the signing. However, much will depend on the will of Rafael Leao, who has always expressed his willingness to remain in European soccer.
