SM: AC Milan star will get new contract

AC Milan will offer Theo Hernandez a new and improved contract after talks with Franck Kessie are closed.

Maldini, Massarra and Gazidis continue to move on the mercato in parallel with their work inside the club to lock down the top players already present in the squad. Progress has already been made regarding the renewal of Franck Kessie with a decisive meeting expected to be held next week.

The Rossoneri management has decided to please the Ivorian central midfielder and guarantee him a figure close to the 6 million per year required. Despite the pharaonic proposal of 8 million per season from Liverpool, Kessie’s priority is to stay at Milan.

Top clubs are very interested in another fundamental player of Stefano Pioli’s eleven, namely Theo Hernandez. The 23-year-old left back has had two extraordinary seasons with the Rossoneri but was shockingly not taken into consideration by Deschamps for the European Championship. AC Milan, on the other hand, are well aware of the player’s value and have already begun to move to tie him down to a new contract.

According to from Sportmediaset, the Rossoneri club will soon begin negotiations to extend the French full-back’s contract. The 23-year-old defender currently earns €1.5 million per year, a relatively low figure for his qualities and the performances shown by the player over the past two years.

The contract adjustment is also necessary because of PSG’s continuous attacks. Theo Hernandez is a top target for the rich Parisian club and Leonardo has never stopped trying to bring Theo to France. Despite the currently deal expiring in 2024, AC Milan will offer Hernandez a new contract at 4-5 million to fend off the interest of foreign clubs.
