Manchester United have reportedly been offered the chance to seal a summer transfer deal for AC Milan winger Rafael Leao.
As things stand, the attacker’s contract with the Italian club is set to expire in the summer of 2024.
However, reports have emerged suggesting that the possibility of him signing a new deal with Milan is in doubt.
This has since led to one reporter claiming that the player’s representative has already been sounding out a potential summer transfer move for Leao.
According to Italian journalist Ciro Venerato (via Sport Witness), Leao’s agent has offered United, as well as Manchester City, Newcastle United and Paris Saint-Germain the chance to sign the winger, who is likely to have an asking price of €90m (£79m).
This season has seen the Portuguese international show how much of a top attacking talent he is by scoring eight goals and providing seven assists in 23 Serie A appearances.
In addition to that, only Victor Osimhen (87) and Lautaro Martinez (86) have racked up more shots at goal in the league this season than the winger (66), showing how much of a consistent goal threat he is.
Should Man United sign Rafael Leao this summer?
Taking into account how Erik ten Hag’s side have the third-lowest percentage of successful take-ons (38.4%) in the Premier League this season, it’s safe to say that adding a player like the Milan star to their side would make them a more direct attacking side.
With all of that in mind, if the door to seal a deal for Leao opens once the summer transfer window opens, United should be at the front of the queue to do so ahead of the other clubs that have apparently been offered the chance to sign him.
