Theo Hernandez, who recently achieved an important milestone in his career by getting his first call-up to France’s senior national team, has now become one of the best left-backs in the world.
The French defender’s pace and contribution to the attack make him very useful for any coach who likes to play modern attacking football.
As for Paolo Maldini, he is always in constant contact with Theo as he deems him highly and would like to convince him to stay at Milanello for a few more years by giving him a significant adjusted salary.
One of the clubs that are showing interest in the French full-back is Manchester City from the Premier League, coached by Pep Guardiola. The Spaniard has been following the progress of the 23-year-old player for at least the last 2 years.
Manchester City board will start thinking seriously about signing a player to replace Benjamin Mendy (who is in prison, facing sexual abuse accusations).
For Milan’s part, though, Theo Hernandez is valued highly and should remain at the club as Maldini and Massara want to keep him.
The Rossoneri management, however, would only consider to accept selling the talented French defender in case a crazy economic offer arrives, somewhere around 65 to 70 million euros.
