Theo Hernandez is often at the heart of AC Milan’s side, and the Frenchman has consistently been willing to go above and beyond for the cause and has not shied away from the responsibility placed upon him.
This is an important year for Milan for several reasons. Primarily, there will be a big decision made about the head coach – whether Stefano Pioli stays or someone else takes the reigns is still unknown.
What is known, though, is the desire to work on contracts for integral first-team members. The first to have been targeted has been Mike Maignan, and the Rossoneri offered him a new deal recently. Not far behind him is Theo Hernandez, who has always, but especially recently, proved his value to the club.
As Calciomercato.com writes, Theo Hernandez is instrumental to the Diavolo. He is a Swiss army knife, but not by the typical definition. He isn’t versatile by the common definition, but when asked to play in central defence, he did so with no qualms and did so very well.
However, his return to left-back has people excited about the Theo of old returning. In his past eight games, he has recorded five assists and scored twice, most recently against Napoli on Sunday evening.
The report states that the club and Theo’s ambitions align very closely. As a result, both parties will happily discuss a new deal for him. Whilst nothing has been planned yet, talks are expected to start at the end of the season.
