Manchester City and the French league giants Paris Saint Germain reportedly are battling against each other to sign the AC Milan defender Theo Hernandez in the future transfer window.
The two European giants are regarding among the favourites for this season’s Champions League after a productive summer window.
However, the left-hand side of defence has sometimes been an issue for both clubs, something which Paris Saint Germain have attempted to rectify with the addition of Sporting Lisbon’s Nuno Mendes.
According to Calciomercato, that signing may not stop PSG joining Man City in the race to sign Hernandez in 2022 or 2023.
The Frenchman has enjoyed a hugely impressive two years at San Siro, contributing 13 goals from 67 starts in Serie A.
Will Theo Hernandez make it to Manchester City or not?
Hernandez possessing a contract until 2024. Milan may be tempting into a sale if they can make a significant profit on the €20 million (£17.18 million). They shelled out this in 2019.
It is claiming that the reigning Premier League champions want a new left-back with Benjamin Mendy. He is currently suspended by the club amid an ongoing legal investigation.
Hernandez however, is raTING at a staggering £68 million by his club. But this doesn’t appear to have put off Manchester City officials. Martin Blackburn is writing that the France international is being closely monitor.
Manchester City are placing down a pretty clear stance over the course of the summer transfer window. The left-back position, is being stating on multiple occasions that they are satisfying with their current options.
Pep Guardiola is expecting to have Oleksandr Zinchenko as his number one choice at left-back. The likes of Joao Cancelo, Nathan Ake, and Aymeric Laporte can all feature – in the event of Benjamin Mendy’s suspension.
