Chelsea have reportedly received a boost in their pursuit of AC Milan forward Rafael Leao.

Talks over a new contract have hit an impasse after the Italian club balked at his demand for over £6m-a-year to remain at the San Siro, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Leao also wants the Serie A club to contribute towards the £14m he was ordered to pay former club Sporting Lisbon by the Portuguese Super Court for breaching his contract four years ago.

However, Milan technical director Paulo Maldini was not happy with this proposal, though, and wanted Chelsea to pay Leao’s €150m (£130m) release clause in full, as reported by The Times journalist Duncan Castles.
