AC Milan are very close to finally securing a new deputy to Theo Hernandez, having reached an agreement with Juan Miranda over personal terms.
As La Gazzetta dello Sport reports, Theo will also play as a centre-back against Atalanta after the successful experiment against Frosinone, and then he will return to the left-back role once the defensive emergency is over overcome.
The Frenchman couldn’t afford to miss a shift because there isn’t a natural left-back capable of replacing him, without entrusting Davide Bartesaghi who is yet to make a competitive start for the club.
In January, Milan will fix that. The management close to an agreement with Real Betis for Juan Miranda, the 23-year-old who has played 13 games this season and also has one goal in one cap for Spain.
Betis do not want to sell him but they will likely be forced to do so. The Spaniard’s contract expires in the summer and there is no desire to extend on the part of the player.
The dilemma is this: is it better to lose him for nothing or negotiate with Milan to sell him in January? It seems that an offer of €3-4m will be enough, with a contract until 2028 ready.
