The Rossoneri have been riding a high the last few days after a pivotal win in Madrid over Diego Simeone's side. Maldini and Massara have been proud of their squad this year and will look to lock down some of their key pieces for the future. The two have already began conversations with the agent of Theo Hernandez prior to the match in Spain, and there are positive feelings about the fullback's renewal.
As reported by CalcioMercato.com, significant steps have already been taken to renew the French player. Hernandez has already made his desire to stay with the Rossoneri known to his agent and the club. The player's current contract expires in 2024, so there is no rush to renew immediately, but the club knows of the player's talent and would like to reward the Frenchman for his accomplishments with an increased salary.
The fullback has shined in the red and black shirt since his arrival, and has recently been called up to the French national team- even scoring a winning goal in a competition.
Hernandez currently earns just over 1.5 million euros, and the club would be willing to give the Frenchman 3.5 million plus bonuses with an extension until 2026. The distance between the club and agent is not far as of now, so there are positive feelings for a speedy renewal of the player. A formal response from Theo's camp is expected within two weeks.
