If Theo Hernandez’s words are to be believed, the 22-year-old left-back won’t be coming to Paris Saint-Germain any time soon.
Hernandez has had a stellar season at AC Milan and reportedly caught the eye of Leonardo, PSG’s sporting director, who is looking to add another left-back with the impending departure of Layvin Kurzawa.
“After the one at Alavés, this is my best season ever. I have to say thanks to Milan and [Paolo] Maldini: it is never easy to do good for Real Madrid and just as much to emerge or take the place in the club. Like that, or in Atlético Madrid, where I grew up. I haven’t done so well at Real Sociedad either.”
“I want to thank Milan. Maldini believed in me and here I am really happy. I am excited to be at Milan and I decided to stay with the Rossoneri. I have a four-year contract and here I am really happy. If one day I will return to Real? Now I think of Milan because I am totally happy to be here. I have to continue like this, in the future we will see what will happen. The head only and exclusively to Milan. And I would also like to play with France.”
Hernandez is under contract with Milan until 2024, and the France international will cost more than €30 million, as its been reported that PSG already had a bid of that amount rejected.
Recently, Theo’s brother, Lucas, has been linked with a move to PSG. The FC Bayern Munich player just arrived in Germany last summer for €80 million, so in my opinion, it’s unlikely that the Ligue 1 champions will be able to sign either of the Hernandez brothers much less both of them.
