Theo Hernandez feels at home at AC Milan, so much so that he rejected Newcastle United’s attempts to lure him to the Premier League over the summer.
Calciomercato.com report that Theo is happy at Milan and he feels the responsibility of having to set an example for the new signings too. He has achieved the rank of vice-captain thanks to his strong character qualities and his loyalty to the Rossoneri, also shown in the summer.
Theo Hernandez wants to make up for the Champions League semi-finals where he didn’t perform at his usual levels in either leg, and this burning desire was one of the reasons that led the French international not to listen to the flattery of Newcastle.
The Magpies wanted to sign the Frenchman after they got Sandro Tonali by putting on the table a salary twice as high as the current €4.5m net per season he earns. For Milan, Theo remains an essential player who is worth €100m+.
