“I played with Milan on the Playstation. The team also had Kakan who won the Ballon d’Or at the Rossoneri, which was why I partially chose Milan, “Leao initially told Sky Sport.
“It was also the club that showed the most interest to me, and here is a project, a company that aims to play with young people and try to qualify for the Champions League.”
“Cristiano Ronaldo is my idol. He is my idol because he is Portuguese and he got to where he is thanks to his hard work. “
