CM: Value of Milan duo has risen to over €70m – they are the pillars of the future

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have identified two key young players in the current squad that are the foundations from which they will build around, a report claims.

According to what La Gazzetta dello Sport are reporting on Wednesday (via MilanNews), the Rossoneri intend to build around full-back Theo Hernandez and midfielder Ismael Bennacer.

Both of them arrived at Milan last summer from Real Madrid and Empoli respectively and both have established themselves as key members of the starting XI under Stefano Pioli.

The paper claims that the valuation of the duo is worth at least twice that of when they joined (€36m combined becomes €70m+), but at Casa Milan they have no plans to sell.

In fact, CEO Ivan Gazidis already has two perfect elements for his youth revolution, which may or may not be led by Ralf Rangnick depending on which of the media outlets you believe.
