In the highly competitive world of football, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) has set its sights on an ambitious target for the upcoming summer transfer window: the talented Portuguese striker Rafael Leao. Sources close to the player have confirmed that Leao is aware of PSG’s interest in signing him, although formal negotiations have not yet begun.
PSG sees AC Milan’s number 10 as a highly sought-after addition to strengthen their attacking line. According to sports journalist Matteo Moretto, Leao’s release clause is an impressive €175 million. Despite the hefty price tag, PSG’s interest remains strong, and Leao is their top priority.
PSG’s sports director, Luís Campos, is already working ahead to plan for the next season. While the club has already made significant investments in attackers during the current campaign, the uncertainty surrounding Kylian Mbappé’s future has prompted them to explore new offensive options. Randal Kolo Muani, Gonçalo Ramos, Bradley Barcola, Ousmane Dembélé, and Marco Asensio have already joined, but PSG’s ambition doesn’t stop there.
Leao, who has a previous connection with Campos from their time at Lille OSC, has been included in PSG’s shortlist of potential signings, as reported by Téléfoot. The club has taken concrete steps to secure the deal at the end of this season, and Leao himself is open to considering the proposal. However, PSG may face competition from Newcastle, who have also expressed a strong interest in acquiring the promising AC Milan striker. The summer transfer market promises intense emotions, with Leao’s future at the center of attention.
