Milan Demands for Theo Hernandez Blow Suitors Out of the Water

Milan left-back Theo Hernandez is one of the hottest prospects in European football, with the Rossoneri keen to fend off suitors. According to Spain’s AS via MilanNews, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain have deemed the Italians’ €80-100 million valuation of their vice-captain excessive.

Neither side would come anywhere near that figure, which could bolster the San Siro outfit’s hopes of keeping hold of the 26-year-old. In addition to Hernandez’s unquestionable qualities, Milan might have slapped such a formidable price tag to deter wealthy foreign clubs from dispatching offers for their first-team star.

However, Hernandez is having second thoughts about committing his future to Milan. His contract runs out in 2026, putting the Rossoneri under pressure to address his deal immediately after Euro 2024. The ex-Real Madrid man enjoyed a stellar start to the tournament, playing a major role as France squeezed past Austria 1-0.

If Hernandez continues in a similar vein, there’s no doubt clubs will swamp the Milan headquarters with proposals for the French talisman. With that in mind, Paulo Fonseca’s men are already scoring the market for potential replacements despite securing a permanent deal for Spanish teenager Alejandro Jimenez.

West Ham United’s Emerson Palmieri has emerged as a potential target for Milan following a decent season in London. Despite failing to make Luciano Spalletti’s Italy squad for Euro 2024, the ex-Chelsea defender could become a realistic option for Milan if Hernandez does depart.

He’s no stranger to Serie A, as he spent three years at Roma before switching to the Premier League in 2018. His experience in Italian football could convince Milan to place him high on their list of Hernandez’s potential successors.
