Premier League Champions Manchester City may join in with the winter transfer window fun after Liverpool got the ball rolling amongst the ‘Big Six’ as they are on the verge of confirming the signing of PSV winger Cody Gakpo.
Even though they still have World Cup winner Julian Alvarez to come back into the fold as well as Erling Haaland upfront and firing according to reports City want to add another attacker to their side.
The attacker in question is AC Milan’s Rafael Leao who was part of the Portugal World Cup squad who made it to the quarter-finals.
City interested in swap deal for Rafael Leao
According to Calciomercato, City would be interested in getting Leao whilst sending Jack Grealish the other way to Italy.
Leao’s contract is up in 2024 with the Serie A Champions struggling to come to an agreement with the winger on a renewal so they may look to cash in when they can.
Milan aren’t convinced by the exchange though due to the wages of Grealish and also the age difference between the pair as Leao has many more years left in his career compared to the English international.
So a deal for Leao may happen however it seems unlikely that Grealish will go the other way.
