Report claims Milan are ready to fend off interest from PSG in €50m defender with new deal

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are ready to combat reported interest in Theo Hernandez by offering him a pay rise less than a year after joining. 

That is according to Todofichajes, who claim that Milan are ready to reward the Frenchman for his excellent performances since his arrival by sitting down at the negotiating table again.

He joined from Real Madrid in the summer for a fee widely reported to be €20million and given that he has already scored six goals in all competitions for the Rossoneri, he is now apparently worth around €50m as per the report.

A recent report from La Gazzetta dello Sport claimed that Theo is now worth at least double the fee that Milan paid to sign him, while Tuttosport claimed last week that PSG are lining up a bid.

But the latest report claims that Milan are open to giving Theo a pay rise on his current €1.5million per year, a negotiation which will start when the Coronavirus emergency is over.

The player for his part is happy to bind himself even more to the Diavolo as he believes in the project and thinks he is in the right place to grow, something he indicated in his most recent interview.
