PSG To Triple Player's Wages In Attempt To Seal Massive Summer Transfer
| Last updated
Paris Saint-Germain are prepared to triple AC Milan defender Theo Hernandez's wages in order to seal another huge summer deal.
The French side have been incredibly active in the transfer window thus far, signing Sergio Ramos, Gini Wijnaldum and Gianluigi Donnarumma on free transfers as well as snapping up Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan for a fee of £54 million.
But PSG are not planning on stopping their spending spree there and are keen on strengthening their backline with another former Real Madrid defender in Hernandez.
The 23-year-old has just come off the back of an impressive season with Milan, notching eight goals and registering eight assists in 45 appearances.
His performances caught the eye of Mauricio Pochettino and according to SportMediaset, via Cult of Calcio, PSG are preparing a substantial offer for Hernandez and are willing to pay him €5 million per year.

Hernandez currently earns €1.5 million at Milan and in hearing about PSG's interest, the Rossoneri arranged a meeting with his representatives to discuss a new and improved contract.
Although they wish to keep him, Milan are unable to match PSG's terms when it comes to wages.
The Frenchman signed for Milan in a €20 million move and with his stock rising significantly, it's said PSG will have to fork out €60 million for his services.
In addition to a plethora of new signings, the club also moved to extend Pochettino's contract until 2023 after exercising the option for an extra year in the deal he signed in January.
"I'm really very happy, for myself and also for my staff," the Argentine said reacting to Friday's announcement.
"It's very important for us to feel the confidence of the club and we will give our maximum so that the supporters are proud of Paris St Germain.
That's why we will try and reach our objectives altogether, as one. Twenty years ago I was captain of this club and today I am the coach. It's a dream come true."
