Lawyer of Rafael Leao denies bust-up with AC Milan chief Maldini
The lawyer of Rafael Leao insists he's happy at AC Milan.
There has been reports of a bust-up with director Paolo Maldini over his new contract demands.
“There are many false and misleading informations about Rafael Leao, mainly in Italian press," Ted Dimvula told Sky Sport Italia transfer reporter Fabrizio Romano.
“This has only one aim: to parasitize cordial and professional exchange that we have with AC Milan management regarding the extension of Rafael's contract.
“We are currently working together to find a satisfactory solution for all parties. The player's priority has not changed: he wants to stay at AC Milan and continue to grow and progress in this institution and this city that he loves so much.
“We therefore firmly deny any desire on the part of Rafael and/or his entourage to lower his release clause in order to facilitate a departure of the player next summer.
“Rafael is fully focused on the important goals to come with his current club and wishes, in this difficult period, to be able to work in calm and serenity in order to get back to winning."
