PSG set sights on Theo as Milan prepare new contract for star defender

by | Sep 24, 2021 09:22

According to Il Corriere dello Sport, Milan are set to reward Theo Hernandez with a new contract, but PSG have set their sights on the French defender.

Scorer of 16 goals in 87 appearances with the Rossoneri, Theo moved to Milan in 2019, completing a €20m move from Real Madrid.

On Wednesday, the Frenchman was the Man of the Match against Venezia as he came off the bench to provide an assist and score a goal in the Rossoneri’s 2-0 over the newly-promoted side.

His contract at San Siro expires in June 2024 and according to Il Corriere dello Sport, the Diavoli are considering rewarding their star defender with a new contract.

The club’s directors also want to sit down with the player and his representative due to PSG’s interest.

The Ligue 1 giants have been linked with the former Real Madrid man for quite a long time and the Rossoneri want to warn off interest from PSG by offering Theo a contract extension.

However, Milan’s priority remains to extend Franck Kessié’s contract as his deal at San Siro runs out in the summer.

PSG already did business with Italian players and Serie A clubs over the summer, having signed Gigio Donnarumma as a free agent from Milan and Achraf Hakimi from Inter.

    Not sure how much of this is just random media speculation, but what is it with any player doing well here and “interest from PSG”? This will be the year to tie him down, we should offer him a decent contract but not crazy money. If he doesn’t take it then we sell him in summer ’22, where he’s far enough from contract expiry to get good money for him. But I hope he accepts an extension and stays.

    So sick of PSG. From Thiago Silva and Ibra right up to present day, all Leonardo and his blood money club ever do is steal from Milan. FFP a joke.

    I just don’t like how there are no ramifications. Fair enough if clubs want to spend stupid money but how is there no comeback for the club? Milan spent way beyond their means and were punished – fair enough. PSG have an average attendance of around 45,000 in a good season, finished second in a mediocre league and haven’t won anything in Europe. HOW can they afford to pay Messi, Ramos, Neymar, Mbappe, di Maria, Donnarumma, Wijnaldum PLUS their big, robust squad? They just can’t, going off their sporting merits. As a business proposition this is a financial death trap but the machine keeps going and going and going. Are they selling shirts for £1,000 per unit? Are their salsiccia sandwiches that good? I don’t get it.

    @Chris PSG are owned by Qatar Sports Investments who are owned by Qatar Investment Authority that, as of a 2020 report, had over 251 billion euros in assets. Those are fairly deep pockets. That 12 million euro contract for Donnarumma is a veritable drop in the bucket.

    PSG will destroy itself by over-egging the pudding.

    We can already see that having too many stars is causing issues.

    If Theo is wise, he will see that it’s not a healthy environment for players and it’s just creating a bunch of mercenaries.
