Leao delivers a transfer blow to all London-based clubs
AC Milan winger Rafael Leao doesn’t “like the weather” in London which may be a problem for Chelsea who are after the player.
has claimed that the Serie A is “easy” for him. He has been one of the hottest prospects around Europe and Milan are trying to tie him down to a long-term contract. Premier League clubs like Chelsea are interested in signing the 23-year-old as well.
However, the Portuguese winger doesn’t really want to move cities since he doesn’t like the weather in a city like London, which might hamper any potential Chelsea deal in the future.
"I don't like the weather there. I went shopping the first time I went to London,"
the 23-year-old joked to Portuguese outlet A Bola
. "[In Milan I like] the Duomo (barbershop), shopping malls, nightclubs and the food."
He then admitted that the Serie A is now too easy for him.
"Serie A is very easy, yes it seems",
. "Before arriving to Serie A I was in France, where the first year was difficult. They came in hard. But when you have ability, when you are faster, you can create and make a difference. The second year was much better and I grew a lot. I have to show the world what I can do on the pitch and off it."
hope to keep the Portuguese youngster but the allure of clubs like Man City or PSG might be too much for Leao, who has only a year left on his contract.
