Milan Shift Attention Toward Two Pivotal Extensions

After the end of the January window, Milan will resume focusing on the contract renewals, in particular those of Mike Maignan and Theo Hernandez. The two French aces are tied to them until 2026 and are both due for a pay bump, TuttoSport informs (via Tag24).

The fullback hasn’t shown any signs of restlessness. The talks with him will be handled in the coming months serenely. He makes €4M and plans to stay with the Rossoneri long-term. The parties will just need to make each other’s needs collimate.

Instead, Milan might find it harder to strike a deal with Maignan than with Hernandez. He’s still on his original contract following the transfer from Lille and earns €3M net. He’s comfortable where he is, but he expects a raise.

At the same time, the brass hopes the goalkeeper won’t ask for the moon and to be paid like the top goalies in other leagues. Bayern Munich are waiting in the wings to see how the situation unfolds. Per La Gazzetta dello Sport, a €6/7M annual salary could make both happy.

Our Take on Milan, Maignan, and Hernandez

The expiration dates aren’t so close, so the team will be able to take their time and get to the numbers they like. The defender is a safe bet to stay put for the long haul. Instead, considering his age and price tag, it wouldn’t be a stunner if the Rossoneri eventually cashed in on the goalie in the future.
