Pellegatti: Big bids for Theo Hernandez will soon arrive; €500k PSG defender eyed

By Oliver Fisher -

Big offers from Europe’s elite clubs are expected to arrive for Theo Hernandez in what will be a ‘test’ for AC Milan’s owners, according to Carlo Pellegatti.

Hernandez arrived on a five-year deal from Real Madrid in the summer after a personal effort from Paolo Maldini to convince him to join, and six months in he is already repaying that faith having scored five goals in all competitions.

Pellegatti spoke about the future of the Rossoneri’s left-back position in an editorial for Calciomercato.com, claiming that one of the priorities at the moment is to source a replacement for Ricardo Rodriguez.

However, ‘assaults from the top European clubs will soon begin’ for Hernandez – the journalist claims – something which will provide a big indication as to what Elliott Management’s intentions are based on how they respond to the offers.

Looking at potential replacements for Rodriguez though, it is possible that Milan could return for Mitchel Bakker, currently at Paris Saint-Germain but struggling for game time. The 19-year-old Ajax academy product could arrive at Milan for free or for a fee as little as €500,000.
