Rafael Leao: “New signings have raised AC Milan’s level, we’re targeting the Serie A title”

After a summer of upheaval at the Stadio San Siro, forward Rafael Leao believes that AC Milan are going into the upcoming Serie A season with a stronger squad and the Rossoneri are aiming to reclaim the scudetto this season.


AC Milan forward Rafael Leao is impressed with the club’s work in the transfer market after they brought in eight new players, and feels they can enjoy a strong season in Serie A.

The Rossoneri have been extremely active this summer, thanks in part to the sale of Sandro Tonali to Newcastle United, and have recruited USMNT stars Christian Pulisic and Yunus Musah, as well as Samuel Chukwueze, Noah Okafor, and Tijjani Reijnders.

This is coupled with the arrival of England international Ruben Loftus-Cheek from Chelsea, Lazio starlet Luka Romero, and Atalanta goalkeeper Marco Sportiello.

In an interview with Italian television broadcaster Sport Mediaset following Milan‘s pre-season friendly against Monza in the Trofeo Silvio Berlusconi, and as reported by Sosfanta.com, Leao ran the rule over the new additions and felt they made the Rossoneri stronger.

“The Serie A title is an objective, but the season hasn’t started yet,” the Portugal international declared. The club is doing a great job and bringing in great players, we are a more compact and strong team in all positions.

“Those who have arrived have raised the level. We have to move forward with confidence and have a great season, taking it one game at a time,” he added.

Portuguese star commits to Milan

Milan endured a disappointing campaign last season as they struggled to defend their Serie A title, but their aggressive approach to the transfer window has seen optimism renewed ahead of the upcoming season.

Leao enjoyed a strong season on a personal level as he netted 15 goals in 35 league appearances, but struggled to make an impact as Milan were beaten by bitter rivals Inter in the Champions League semi-final.

The former Sporting CP and Lille attacker extended his contract at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in May until 2028, putting to bed speculation surrounding his future at the club.
