AC Milan left-back Theo Hernandez has revealed that he is in talks about a new contract with his club while hinting that he is happy playing at the San Siro.
Hernandez again showed how important his role was for AC Milan through the contribution of two goals when his team buried Venezia 3-0. The slick performance of the player certainly made the Rossoneri even more insistent on wanting to keep him even longer at the San Siro even though he currently has a contract until 2024 later.
However, Milan have already held talks with the player to try to tie him up much longer. Certainty regarding the discussion about the new contract was confirmed by Hernandez in his interview with Sky Sport Italia after the match against Venice.
Hernandez confirmed that he is currently negotiating a new contract with Milan and his development is very good and conducive. The former Real Madrid player also gave a strong signal about his opportunity to continue playing with Stefano Pioli’s team by saying that he was indeed happy to play with the club from the fashion city.
Moreover, there is high confidence given to him through the provision of the captain’s armband in two matches against Milan earlier this year. Hernandez said he was delighted to have earned the club’s trust but said it was his turn in the absence of Alessio Romagnoli and Davide Calabria.
Brought from Madrid in 2019, Hernandez can be said to have had enough experience to get the opportunity to hold the captain’s armband from the Red and Black squad. In addition, the French national team player has also become an important figure for the Rossoneri’s game, especially with his very special attacking ability.
It is very important of course for Milan to be able to keep him considering that several big clubs have started to monitor the performance of the 24-year-old defender. The Red and Black squad certainly don’t want to lose their important players again, at least not by running out of contracts like what happened with Gianluigi Donnarumma or Hakan Calhanoglu.
