Theo Hernandez Snubs Chelsea and PSG to Stick with Milan Until 2027

Rossoneri left wing-back Theo Hernandez has grown to become one of Stefano Pioli’s first names on the team sheet, credit to his impressive performances of late. This has prompted Milan to offer a contract renewal deal for the former Real Madrid defender in light of his recent displays.

Both the parties have agreed to the deal that will now see Hernandez’s contract expire in the summer of 2027 – rather than 2024 – on a €4m net per season agreement plus bonuses. Technical director Paolo Maldini has long known to be a fan of Hernandez, since the Frenchman’s days in the Spanish capital, now taking the step forward to secure his services for a few more years than initially slated.

The aggregate €20m five-year-deal is expected to be announced soon by the Milan, potentially by next week. The offer takes his salary from €1.5m per season to €4-€4.5m including bonuses– a threefold increase.

According to reports from Calciomercato, the 24-year-old fullback was high on the wish list of two European heavyweights – current Champions League title holders Chelsea and French giants Paris Saint-Germain – both coming forward with ‘very attractive proposals from an economic and technical point of view’.

However, he has chosen to stick with Milan for the foreseeable future, given his comfortable relationship with . The then relatively unknown Hernandez moved from Real Madrid to the Rossoneri in a €20m transfer deal in 2019. He has 4 goals and 7 assists in 26 appearances for Milan this season.

Milan are also close to agreeing renewed deals with Ismael Bennacer and Rafael Leao.
