Rafael Leao will 'talk' with Milan about new deal upon his return from World Cup

Portugal international Rafael Leao will discuss a new contract with AC Milan when he returns from the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The 23-year-old winger only has 18 months left on the contract he penned when he joined the Serie A club in 2019, and will consider committing to a fresh deal.

However, he also made it clear that he is currently focusing on Portugal's World Cup campaign, as they have already secured a ticket to the knockout stage.

"I'm happy, proud, now I have to concentrate on the World Cup, then I will talk to Milan as soon as I arrive," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Do I want to sign the contract? Even before arriving in the national team we had a meeting with Maldini, it was positive, so when I arrive in Milan we will talk."

Leao has made 28 appearances for the Rossoneri so far this season, scoring eight goals and providing 10 assists.
