Franck Kessie and Theo Hernandez have been linked with moves to Parc des Princes recently.

Milan have struggled to renew the contract of Franck Kessie in recent months. The 24-year-old has rejected the club’s offer for a contract extension, generating serious doubt about his future at the club.

Kessie is already linked with multiple top clubs, including PSG and Milan. The Rossoneri fans were, however, shocked by reports linking Theo Hernandez with a move to Paris.

Unlike Kessie, whose contract expires next year, Hernandez’s deal runs until 2024. The France international has developed into a key player for Stefano Pioli’s side, with the club being interested in offering him a new contract.

PSG sporting director Leonardo dismissed rumors around the Parisians’ interest in signing the Milan pair.

“We haven’t contacted any player, there’s nothing with Franck Kessie or Theo Hernandez,” he told a press conference.

According to Calciomarcato, Milan are planning to offer Hernandez a new contract with a significant pay rise.

The Serie A giants are reportedly willing to offer a €4m annual salary to the Frenchman who currently earns around €1.5m-a-year.
