With Franck Kessie’s renewal having descended into a soap opera, AC Milan are already planning to act early on possible future renewals.
According to Alberto Cerruti’s latest column for MilanNews, the Rossoneri management are aware that they must immediately act to try and secure the long-term future of other star young players, having seen how the Kessie situation has ended up becoming a saga.
One of the players concerned is Theo Hernandez, even if he has a contract which is expiring in 2024. This is because PSG have already come forward and registered their interest in signing him, and therefore the idea of Milan to extend his contract by a further year until 2025 with a jump from €1.5m net per season to €4.5m – therefore a salary tripling.
Time passes quickly and the suitors, in addition to the PSG, are not lacking. Proactivity rather than reactivity seems to be the new mantra of Maldini and Massara.
