AC Milan rumour round-up: Hernandez announced, Bennacer and Krunic next


As opposed to previous weeks, the transfer market has entered a stage where some of the rumours actually materialize, at least for AC Milan. This week, the Rossoneri announced the signing of Theo Hernandez, and more announcements are expected. Down below are the latest rumours about the team. 

Theo Hernandez officially announced: the details

As mentioned, the signing of the left-back was announced on Saturday, even though the deal had been done for a while now. Contrary to previous reports, though, Hernandez has joined Milan on a permanent basis for a reported fee of €20m. In a statement on their website, the Rossoneri confirmed the signing.

“AC Milan (the Club) announces the agreement with Real Madrid Club de Fùtbol for the definitive acquisition of the registration rights of Theo Bernard Franҫois Hernández (Theo Hernández). The French left-back joins the Club on a permanent deal, penning a five-year contract until 30 June 2024,” it read. 

Agreement reached for Bennacer: Krunic announcement expected shortly

Milan aren’t done when it comes to reinforcing the midfield. After signing Krunic, who will be announced in the coming days (as he has already completed the medical), the Rossoneri are very close to bringing in another midfielder from Empoli: Bennacer. In fact, a deal is in place.

The Algerian could undergo his medical as early as Monday, before completing a €16m move to the San Siro side. He will most likely sign a five-year contract with the club, adding some much-needed depth to the regista position. In other words, it seems Milan have chosen Bennacer rather than Torreira.

Donnarumma could lower his salary to stay 

After the exit rumours surfaced a few weeks ago, it seems like Donnarumma will remain at Milan after all, just like what happened two years ago. As reported by Calciomercato and Gazzetta Dello Sport, the young goalkeeper has told his agent, Raiola, that he wants to remain at the club.

Furthermore, he’s reportedly willing to lower his salary, which currently stands at €6.5m per year. Milan intend to extend his contract by one year, until 2022, while keeping the total value of the current deal to spread the financial commitment over a greater number of years.

Borini could leave for a return to Premier League

As reported by Gazzetta Dello Sport, two English sides are interested in the services of Borini: Crystal Palace and newly-promoted Aston Villa. The former are expected to submit an official offer very soon, while Villa are just keeping tabs on the situation for the time being.

Milan have reportedly slapped a €15m price tag on the Italian, who would prefer to stay in the country next season. However, his salary of €2.5m per year is considered hefty, though it’s feasible abroad. Furthermore, the Rossoneri are willing to sell the player this summer.
