OFFICIAL: Milan sign Rafael Leao

Milan have officially signed Portugal Under-21 striker Rafael Leao from Lille for a reported €35m.

A statement on Milan’s website confirms Leao has put pen to paper on a five-year contract.

It is understood the Rossoneri have paid an initial €30m for the attacker, with €5m to follow in bonuses.

There is also no mention of Primavera defender Tiago Djalo moving in the opposite direction.

The 20-year-old broke out last season for Lille, scoring eight goals to help them finish behind only Paris Saris-Saint-Germain in Ligue 1.

Brazilian defender Leo Duarte is also set to follow from Flamengo.

He replaces Patrick Cutrone, who left for Wolverhampton Wanderers, and becomes the Rossoneri’s third summer signing after Rade Krunic and Theo Hernandez.
