Rafael Leão emerges as the frontrunner and stands among the favored choices for the upcoming summer transfer window. Over the last few days, the AC Milan star has been linked to the French giants.
Nonetheless, conflicting reports emerged on Saturday regarding Laurens’ decision regarding the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner’s choice. While Le Parisien claimed the player had chosen to depart, other sources indicated no decision had been reached.
The upcoming days are intriguing, particularly if the player opts to leave and Leão is the top target.
