Rafael Leao: I tried to bring this Portugal teammate to AC Milan

Rafael Leao admits he tried to convince Portugal teammate Joao Cancelo about a move to AC Milan.

Cancelo is this season on-loan at Barcelona from Manchester City.

Leao told Fabrizio Romano: “National team, I was talking with Cancelo, because he played for Inter. And he told me 'honestly, I really like Milan, Milan is a high club, when I used to play in the stadium against them I felt the supporters, and when I was a kid, I really liked the club'. And I told him 'come'.

“He told me it was difficult, he was with Manchester City.
