AC Milan left-back Theo Hernandez emerges as new objective for Man Utd

AC Milan left-back Theo Hernandez has emerged as a new objective for Manchester United ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils currently have Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia as their specialist left-backs, but both are nursing injuries.

Shaw has suffered multiple muscular injuries this term and he is expected to be out until the final weeks of the season.

Meanwhile, Tyrell Malacia has not made an appearance this season, having yet to recover from a knee ligament issue.

There is a high possibility that the Dutchman could be sidelined for the remainder of the campaign.

Amidst this, Fichajes report that manager Erik ten Hag is eyeing a new left-back, who can guarantee his availability.

The same source claims that United would be ‘willing to pay’ €60 million to persuade the Rossoneri to sell Hernandez.

Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be admirers of the 26-year-old.

United unlikely to make huge outlay on a new left-back

The Red Devils are currently without Shaw and Malacia, but they have managed to cope with their absence.

Victor Lindelof featured at left-back in multiple games in the lead up to the March international break.

Diogo Dalot is now expected to take up the position with Aaron Wan-Bissaka fit to start regularly at right-back.

United are planning to invest on a left-back, but we don’t see them spending €60m on Hernandez.

The club will be operating with a tight budget amid Financial Fair Play constraints this summer.

Their spending could be further restricted if they don’t qualify for the Champions League.

The onus could be on player exits to recoup part of the transfer funds to sign new players.

With this in mind, the club are likely to invest more cautiously and the focus could be on an emerging left-back.

Hernandez has been fantastic for the Rossoneri this season with five goals and 10 assists from 38 appearances.

The Frenchman can also operate as a left centre-back, but United are more likely to sign a right-sided central defender.

On that basis, we don’t see a deal happening. The speculation could be agent-driven to persuade Milan to extend his contract.

Hernandez’s current deal with the Rossoneri expires in the summer of 2026.
