Chelsea blow as Theo Hernandez nears agreement with AC Milan

Chelsea’s bid for AC Milan’s wing-back Theo Hernandez seems to be near its dead end as the defender gets ready to consent to another agreement with the Italian side.

The left-back was a target for the Blues for the summer, as they look to provide long-term competition to Ben Chilwell in that position.

However, TuttoMercatoWeb states that Hernandez is very close to renewing his contract with Milan.

That deal will take him to 2026, and he will double his salary as well.

Hernandez is happy with life in Milan and with his team, and may not be tempted by a move to the Premier League at this stage of his career.
