AC Milan’s owners Elliott Management could sacrifice left-back Theo Hernandez this summer in order to generate a big capital gain, a report claims.
As we head towards the business end of the season, there is no denying that Theo Hernandez has been one of AC Milan’s most consistently impressive performers.
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, that appears to be a bargain and a deal which Real Madrid regret.
However, as Tuttosport reports on Friday (via MilanLive), even the future of the Frenchman is in the balance this summer.
Like most things, this is because of the corporate chaos currently unfolding above him. The 22-year-old did ‘not remain indifferent to the sacking of Boban’, the paper claims, and is close to Paolo Maldini who could leave this summer.
Hernandez was the subject of a blitz in Ibiza from Maldini where the director managed to receive the approval regarding a move to the San Siro.
So Maldini’s farewell could upset him further, and considering that his exploits have certainly not gone unnoticed (several clubs have scouted him) an exit cannot be excluded.
Hernandez is happy at Milan and has settled well, but much will depend on how the tactical project of the club will evolve and who will guide it. For Elliott Management Corporation there could be a healthy capital gain in the event of a sale, and that in itself is a temptation.
