Paolo Maldini admits AC Milan missed Rafael Leao extension deadline

AC Milan technical director Paolo Maldini has admitted that renewing the in-demand Rafael Leao’s contract before he left for the World Cup was ‘not possible’.

Milan officials had publicly voiced their optimism at renewing Leao’s deal before the Serie A season was put on hold but, as 90min revealed earlier this week, the Chelsea target left for the World Cup without reaching an agreement.

Sources have confirmed that Milan are prepared to make Leao the highest earner in Serie A to fend off interest from Chelsea, but even such an offer has yet to yield any results for the Rossoneri.
