Boehly wants to bring a “wonderful 6 ft 2 star to Chelsea,” a journalist confirms

Recent sources state that journalist Pete O’Rourke thinks Chelsea ‘would love’ to sign Rafael Leao and bring him to Stamford Bridge in light of recent interest.

According to The Times, Chelsea held discussions with AC Milan in the summer in anticipation of a prospective transfer.

But it turned out that the Serie A champions would not consent to a deal unless the Portuguese forward’s €150 million release clause (£131 million) was satisfied.

Paolo Maldini, the director of the Italian powerhouse, claimed that the club declined a Chelsea approach since it was made at a “informal level.”

In light of rumors that the two parties are in negotiations over a reworked contract, the former defender thinks the 23-year-old might potentially sign an improved agreement at the San Siro.

According to his present terms, his contract will end in 2024, but O’Rourke still thinks the Blues might look again at a prospective agreement.

He said to GIVEMESPORT: “AC Milan firmly rejected Chelsea’s proposal during the summer transfer window.

“We all know they’ve struggled to score goals in both the previous and current campaigns, so Leao is undoubtedly someone they would want to have at Stamford Bridge. However, it appears that Milan are very adamant about seeing his future in the San Siro.”

Only Raheem Sterling has scored more than one goal for Chelsea in the Premier League so far this year, but with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang settling in, the Blues may have a better chance of catching up to the top two teams from the previous year.

West London outscored both Manchester City (99) and Liverpool (94) despite being the third-highest scoring team in the league the previous season (76).

Leao was directly involved in 26 goals in 42 games last season, so if they do decide to try to sign him in the future, he may significantly enhance their attack line.

The 6 foot 2 talent, who Tiago Fernandes, his former coach, said would have a “great” career, may be a big signing for Todd Boehly, but it is unclear what his future holds.
