Rafael Leão will land in Milano on Tuesday and have his medical, while Léo Duarte from Flamengo is a done deal.
Patrick Cutrone is on his way to England to complete his €18m plus €4m bonuses move to Wolverhampton Wanderers. His replacement in the squad is already known: 20-year-old Rafael Leão.
Milan have struck a deal with Lille for Leão, who is called by some ‘the Portuguese Mbappé’. The Rossoneri are expected to pay €30 million for him, while giving Lille a percentage from a future sale. In addition, young center back Tiago Djaló should move to Lille from Milan Primavera for €5m.
According to Milannews.it, Leão will tomorrow fly to Italy to have his medical with the club. He should then sign a five-year contract with the club. Rafael joined Lille just last summer on a free transfer after finishing his contract with Sporting, where he grew up; he scored 8 goals in 26 games.
Milan are getting a reinforcement in attack, but also in defense as the arrival of 23-year-old Léo Duarte is confirmed. “I’m sure that Duarte will certainly play at Milan and will do very well in Serie A,” said Flamengo coach Jorge Jesus last night. The Diavolo are set to pay €10m plus €1m of bonuses for the center-back. RadioRossonera expects him to be in Italy on Tuesday and have a medical this week.
The transfer market of Milan is alive and after virtually completing the sale of Cutrone and bringing Leão and Duarte, they can now focus on selling more players and making more changes.
