Theo Hernández’s agent has received Milan’s first offer for a new contract.
After completing the renewals of Simon Kjær, Alexis Saelemaekers and Stefano Pioli, Milan now want to finalize the extensions of Ismaël Bennacer, Rafael Leão and Theo Hernández.
As reported by Pietro Mazzara, progress has been made this week on the Theo front, and Paolo Maldini & Frederic Massara are determined to get him to sign on a new contract as soon as possible.
Mazzara reports that on Wednesday, before Atlético Madrid-Milan, which ended in a big win for the Rossoneri, Maldini and Massara met with Manuel Garcia Quilon, the agent of Theo. Talks were of course held also before that meeting, but Milan took the opportunity to present an official offer.
Milan offer Theo a new contract until 2026, worth €4m per season as a base salary, plus bonuses related to team and individual objectives. The Frenchman, who arrived from Real Madrid in the summer of 2019, currently earns €1.5m. A ‘yes’ or a counter-offer is expected in the coming weeks.
It’s widely believed that Hernández wants to stay at Milan as he feels good at the club and in the city, and is now expecting a child with his pregnant girlfriend Zoe Cristofoli.
