CM.it: Milan’s demands have quashed interest in Theo – price tag set

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan’s hefty price tag for Theo Hernandez has slowed much of the interest in him from top sides in Europe, so now the player is waiting for an offer.

As has been reported by Calciomercato.it, the Rossoneri have been asking for a transfer fee of between €80m and €100m. That sort of fee has stopped a lot of clubs from thinking about Hernandez too seriously as an option.

As far as the player is concerned, though, Milan putting a high price on his head means they should soon come forward with a contract offer that meets his demands, if he is so important to the squad.

His comments before Euro 2024 where he said he ‘does not know’ if he will leave or not led to a swell of interest in his services. It was already known that Bayern Munich are interested, but several other top European clubs have been linked as well, such as Real Madrid and Manchester United.

There will be no serious movement when it comes to a transfer or a new contract with Hernandez until he has returned from Euro 2024, but Milan certainly need to find a solution else they risk losing the player for less than his market value in the near future.

  1. Pay the man.
    They should be able to pay 8 mil. They were willing to pay that to Gigio in ’21 and he was just a GK.
    Theo is one of the best in his position and you can count on him to be available every game unless he is suspended, unlike Maignan.

    1. “They were willing to pay that to Gigio in ’21 and he was just a GK.”
      That’s a different management. Not sure if Redbird are willing to allow so many exceptions to their “salary cap”.

          1. Milan currently only has 2 players that are reserving of salary cap exceptions, Leao and Theo. They took care of Leao, it shouldn’t be a problem to take care of Theo.
            The rest might be deserving in the future but not now.

  2. This is Kessie and Gigio all over again. This club has become a soap opera.. Pay the man his fair market value or he will leave for free in 2 years, as simple as that…

    1. this is what they will not do…this is why the last manager lost his position…if they cant come to terms they will sell. Selling brings revenue, revenue means you can pay other players more. See Inter for an example.

  3. Not doing everything possible (within reason) to try to keep Theo is outrageous.

    Step one: offer a project where winning is the goal
    Step two: offer to pay him fair value for his ability/price tag
    Step three: Theo stays

    It really is that simple. Redbird, as of now, has done neither and any player of Theo’s calibur would want to leave.

    Example.
    Harry Kane loves Tottenham but wanted to win so he left. He waited years for them to improve and they didnt. And Tottenham are still doing what they did when he was there. It really is that simple.

  4. Agree. Pay the man. Theo and Rafa are the undisputable cornerstones of our side. Maignan, if only he could remain free from injuries, could one of them too, but that’s another story. Well, I said: keep Theo and Rafa; sign a game-changer striker, a good DM, a CB and a RB; wait for the Euro’s unfold and sell Maignan for the highest bid possible, signing a proper replacement.

    1. 100%

      I would even go so far as to say that we can sell Leao before we can sell Theo. I think Maignan should be the first to go. To be honest, if we strengthen this defence, we can even make do with Sportiello, he is an excellent keeper!

  5. “As far as the player is concerned, though, Milan putting a high price on his head means they should soon come forward with a contract offer that meets his demands, if he is so important to the squad.”

    This situation has all the ingredients to become dirty soap opera and a war with a player deemed irreplaceable.

    Now let’s see them gunslinging westerners how they’ll resolve the situation.

  6. You can sell him if the new coach has flourished, because he us one of few pillars of the team. You lost on of the pillars in Pioli, don’t let another leaders go yet.
