Wolverhampton Wanderers were one of the sides who showed interested in Rafael Leão in the summer.

The 22-year-old is managed by Jorge Mendes, who has close ties to the Premier League side. Earlier reports from the Italy indicated Wolves were advancing talks with the super-agent.

Despite being linked with a move away from the San Siro in the summer, Leão managed to stay and has had a good start to the season with the Serie A side.

Calciomercato state the forward, who seems ‘more mature’, has ‘all the conditions’ to have an ‘important season’ for manager Stefano Pioli.

The website also provides background about how Milan were ‘able to resist temptation’ to cut ties with the ex-Sporting man in the last window, and ‘refused offers’ from four clubs for the player.

Bruno Lage’s side were among those four clubs as Wolves made direct contact with both Mendes and Milan chiefs Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara over signing Leão.

The English club, along with three other sides, ‘tried’ to sign Leão, but Milan refused to accept any proposals.
