Real Madrid have been left with regret regarding the sale of left-back Theo Hernandez to AC Milan last summer.
As Calciomercato.com notes, Paolo Maldini and Zvonomir Boban decided to make a €20million investment on the Frenchman, who had largely struggled during his career with Real Madrid amassing only 23 appearances.
Real president Florentino Perez thought he had collected a lot of money for a player that was not of much use to the team, but six months on everything has changed.
Ever since Hernandez started his first game on September 26, he has never looked back. He has been an ever-present for Stefano Pioli (except his suspension against Atalanta) and is always on the field for 90 minutes.
The stats read well too: he has six goals between the league and the cup and is the club’s second-top scorer. There are still some things to work on, such as his defensive movement and maintaining energy levels over a full 90 minutes, but Milan are absolutely satisfied with their purchase. performance.
For this reason, in recent weeks, they have rejected requests for information from several agents and intermediaries – Theo is not for sale, full stop.
He is a pillar of the present and the future, a player who has chosen Milan and wants to be a leader, and is attached to the shirt, a rare commodity these days.
