Ao’s contract renewal negotiations have come to a standstill, and players are more and more likely to leave the team after the end of the season. In addition to Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain is also paying attention to the potential next home, while Milan’s asking price is more than 100 million euros.
In the current situation, no news does not mean good news, and the fact that Leo’s contract renewal negotiations have been silent means that things are going the other way.
February has passed, and the two sides still have not arranged a specific meeting. It feels that the stalemate will continue in March, and as the transfer window is approaching, it is more and more likely that the Portuguese will leave the team after the end of the season.
The most important point is: With only one year left in the contract, Leo’s 150 million termination clause will become meaningless, and even Chelsea’s 120 million offer in August last year may no longer be valid.
Burleigh has burned a lot of money in recent months, but the performance of the Blues has not improved. Maybe they will still be willing to spend a lot of money for Leo in the summer, and there may be other buyers in the Premier League.
The strategy of Mendes and Leo’s family is to stay on the sidelines and see what the Premier League teams will do. In addition, Paris Saint-Germain also has admirers like Campos.
Considered a potential surrogate target.
Milan obviously realized the potential of this auction, so the threshold for selling Leo was set at more than 100 million euros.
