Manchester City Could Target AC Milan’s Star Forward

according to manchester evening newsManchester City have reportedly promised Pep Guardiola they will target AC Milan’s Rafael Leao at the end of the season. It was also mentioned that after Guardiola agreed to a two-year deal with Ittihad, Manchester City officials assured him that he would be supported in the transfer market.

Leo’s outstanding form at AC Milan this season

The 23-year-old has enjoyed another fine season with Milan, making several impactful appearances on the left flank of the Rossoneri’s attack. This season, he has scored seven goals and provided six assists in 20 appearances across all fronts for the Italian club.

The Almada-born talent has been solid in AC Milan’s final third as he averages 3.6 shots, 1.6 key passes and 1.7 dribbles per game in Serie A.

In the Italian Serie A, he completed 79.4% of his pass attempts and was even neat on passing (data from who scored).

Is Leon suitable for Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola?

Leo has been a reliable player at the San Siro; he has proven his worth as a prolific winger who can find the back of the net and set up teammates in front of goal.

The Portuguese star is adept at getting past defenders in tight situations and can cause a lot of problems for his markers out wide. There is no denying that this talented winger has what it takes to be a future star in European football. However, Phil Foden remains a guaranteed starter on the left for the Celeste, so Leo will have to settle for less playing time than he would have if he had been a regular for the Rossoneri.

Leo, 23, is in top form, making him a perfect fit for the Manchester City giants. However, life in the Premier League is tough and demanding, but if Leo can cope with the pressure and maintain a consistent performance, he will be an excellent addition to Guardiola’s attacking department.
