GdS: Milan to build around three core players – their value has gone from €60m to €120m

By Oliver Fisher -

The value of AC Milan trio Ante Rebic, Theo Hernandez and Ismael Bennacer has grown significantly since their arrival in the summer, a report claims.

Friday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive) takes a look at the three players in question starting with Rebic, who arrived from Eintracht Frankfurt on a two-year loan exchange involving André Silva.

He was anonymous for the first few months but has scored seven goals in 11 games in Serie A and the Coppa Italia, and as such his valuation has grown from €25m to €40m.

The report adds that Milan are in no hurry to speed up the permanent purchase of the Croatia international, but the club are focusing on Rebic for the future.

Theo Hernandez is the big surprise, with Milan having made a €20million investment on the full-back, and he is now worth around €50million after an impressive season which has seen him score six goals in 25 appearances – second only to Rebic. Foreign clubs have shown interest, but Milan do not intend to sell.

Meanwhile, Bennacer arrived for €16million from Empoli and has taken the reins of the Rossoneri midfield and become irreplaceable. The value of the Algerian midfielder has doubled to €30m+ and there is already talk of interest from PSG, but again Milan will not be selling.
