“Maybe they will sell Leao”

A few months ago, AC Milan were linked with Shakhtar Donetsk star Mykhaylo Mudryk and it seemed like the interest was concrete. The hefty price tag, however, made the Rossoneri step back but a solution has been suggested.

Mudryk plays as a left-winger and has attracted the interest of several big clubs over the last few months. Given that he’s just 21 years old, though, the price tag is also very high and Milan have been ruled out for quite some time.

Speaking live on TVplay on Twitch, as cited by PianetaMilan, Shakthar Donetsk director Carlo Nicolini was asked about Milan’s interest in Mudryk. He stated that they probably don’t have the money, unless they sell Rafael Leao.

“Many have taken an indirect interest in Mudryk, without an official offer. There have been a lot of phone calls. I believe that to date, the Italian teams are struggling to sign a profile like this, both because of the price tag and a lack of courage. Maybe they [Milan] will sell Leao and understand that Mudryk has an important talent and they will try to get him,” he stated.

Milan are currently in talks with Leao over a renewal but it’s proving to be difficult, and nothing can be ruled out amid the current 2024 deadline. Mudryk, however, will probably not be the solution for the Rossoneri in any case.
