Rafael Leao

AC Milan forward Rafael Leao is high on Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag’s hitlist for next summer.

United sent scouts to the San Siro on Tuesday night to watch the Portuguese international against Chelsea — just as they did for the first Champions League meeting between the teams at Stamford Bridge earlier this month.

Ten Hag is said to be a huge fan of the speedy left-footer, who can play down either flank as well through the middle, says The Sun.

Leao is in the final 18 months of his AC Milan contract, and has so far rejected improved terms to sign a new five-year deal.

That has raised hopes that he could be up for grabs next summer with a fee of around £60m being mentioned.

But United will face competition from Chelsea, who have been tracking the 23-year-old for months.
