Despite a contract running until 2025, the former Real Madrid player will leave the ranks of the new Italian champion this summer. Announced close to a transfer to Chelsea FC, which is leading a tough competition to Paris Saint-Germain, the 25-year-old fullback is finally heading to the club of the French capital.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Leonardo has decided to increase his offer from 60 to 70 million euros in this case. A proposal that should suit the leaders of the Milanese club according to the transalpine daily. According to the same source, Paris SG is intensifying its pressure on Inter Milan, and the negotiations next week should be “intense” between the two parties. If Chelsea also continues to push, the French vice-champion can count on a considerable asset in this case.
