Chelsea is in the race for a 150 million new signing

Recent reports suggest Chelsea will compete with Paris Saint-Germain for coveted Portugal international Rafael Leao, 24, who is valued at £150m by AC Milan. The talented striker has attracted interest from both Chelsea and PSG, with the London club seeing him as a viable option to bolster their attack.

Since arriving at AC Milan in 2019, Leao has enjoyed a remarkable rise in his career, becoming a prolific attacker for the Rossoneri. Although he experienced moments of inconsistency, his progress was undeniable and made him a sought-after target for several top-flight clubs.

Rafael Leao, Chelsea’s new dream

Chelsea have had a long-standing interest in Leao and would like to take the opportunity to sign the Portugal international. With Raheem Sterling facing an uncertain future at the London club, Leao could be an attractive option to strengthen their forward line.

On the other hand, PSG sees Leao as a possible replacement for Kylian Mbappé, who is expected to move to Real Madrid this summer. With Mbappé’s impending departure, the Ligue 1 champions are looking to strengthen their attacking front and Leao is emerging as a standout option.

Both clubs, Chelsea and PSG, have the financial capacity to meet the £150 million release clause in Leao’s contract with AC Milan. If they decide to activate this clause, the Italian club would be forced to let go of the young striker, who could have the opportunity to choose between the two European giants to continue his football career. The battle for Leao’s services promises to be intense and the Portuguese striker’s fate is far from decided.
