Transfer Talk: PSG want Rafael Leao to replace Kylian Mbappe

Posted Monday, February 12, 2024 by ESPN

Paris Saint-Germain are weighing up a potential swoop for AC Milan forward Rafael Leao in the summer, according to Calciomercato.

It is reported that with Kylian Mbappe expected to depart the French champions in the summer for Real Madrid, Les Parisiens are looking at possible replacements for their forward line. The report reveals that PSG have identified the 24-year-old as their main target to replace Mbappe in the summer.

While PSG held an interest in Leao last summer following the departures of Lionel Messi and Neymar, a bid never materialised, particularly because Mbappe opted to stay at the French outfit. However, with Mbappe's situation set to change, PSG could be tempted into a swoop this summer, although there has been no contact between the two clubs yet.

Portugal international Leao endured a stellar campaign last season, notching 16 goals and 15 assists in all competitions, however he has struggled to replicate that form this campaign. Leao has netted just three goals in Serie A, and while it is reported that he still holds a strong relationship with Milan, a move could be on the cards in the summer.
