The drama off the pitch in the world of soccer is just as engaging as it is on the pitch in the ongoing 2022 FIFA World Cup. According to Football.London, Chelsea have been interested in adding another crown star to their squad, Portuguese attacker Rafael. Leao. He currently plays for AC Milan.

The club have been interested in Leao since he moved from French club Lille to AC Milan. They are also quite impressed by Leao’s performance in the recent game between Portugal and Switzerland on Sunday. Although it was a late challenge for Leao, he scored a goal cutting down the left side, taking goalkeeper Yann Sommer by surprise. His agility in the game earned him admiration in the eyes of sports gurus Ian Wright and Gary Neville. Neville exclaimed that the attacker’s goal was strange enough without a deflection. He also said it was a brilliant effort on his part to score a goal into the far corner of the net.

Wright went on to explain that Leao had the perfect composure to hit the ball at the correct angle, after zipping past the defender.
