Milan reacted in an official statement to the news that his talks with young Portuguese player Rafael Leão, the team’s attacking star, had stalled and that the player was about to leave.
And Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport reported this Tuesday morning that talks between Liao and AC Milan had failed as the player and his lawyer demanded a reduction in the amount of the penalty in his contract from 150 million euros to just 70 million.
Milan responded to these accusations and said in an official statement on his Twitter account: “With regard to the news published by the newspaper La Gazzetta, the Milan club would like to clarify that negotiations with Liao have not been interrupted. “.
He added: “The alleged press report about the interruption or breakdown of negotiations is a fake and has no basis in fact.”
