Rafael Leao admits trying to convince Man City player to join AC Milan




AC Milan star Rafael Leao revealed he attempted to convince Manchester City’s Joao Cancelo to join the Italian club.

It’s common for footballers to try and persuade colleagues to join their teams. Bernardo Silva previously hinted at wanting his Portuguese teammate Joao Neves at City someday.

Leao likely has connections with several City players due to their Portuguese contingent. This includes Bernardo Silva, Ruben Dias, and Joao Cancelo, considered some of Portugal’s finest.


Leao specifically mentioned speaking to Cancelo, a fellow countryman who previously played for Inter Milan, a rival of AC Milan. Cancelo reportedly expressed his admiration for AC Milan’s atmosphere and history.

Leao admitted his attempt to recruit Cancelo, highlighting Milan’s focus on young talent and viewing Cancelo as a perfect fit.

This raises the question of a possible summer move for Cancelo to AC Milan. Leao, a key player at Milan, might influence the club to pursue Cancelo.


In March, Cancelo openly expressed his desire for a permanent move to Barcelona after his loan spell there. This suggests his future at City is uncertain.

City would likely look to sell Cancelo after his loan stints. Barcelona remains a potential buyer, with their president eager to secure him permanently.

However, Barcelona’s financial woes could be an obstacle. If that’s the case, Manchester City might consider AC Milan, where Cancelo would reunite with Leao, as a viable destination.
